Hand to table with heart.

Ceramicist Sarah Kersten's neutral dinnerware has just the right amount of detail, with raw clay peeking out from under the bowls and plates. For the traditionalists, crisp white pops against a colorful tablecloth. Make a bold statement with the moody black, or get playful with a spunky speckled set. The straw-colored adds just a touch of depth with its light, creamy finish. The hand-glazed finishes each have their own beautiful character, with a tiny fleck here or there. Choose from salads bowls (with sides that will corral leaves and grains), ramen bowls (good for cereal, too), shallow bowls (we're seeing stews), and uniquely oval plates—all in sets of 2.
