Art on a platter.

Bring a tray of appetizers to the table with one of these gems, and we’re not sure what will grab more attention—the starters or the dish they’re on. Every oval platter here was wheel-thrown in Vermont, then hand-painted to create those pretty patterns you see (yep, they’re bona fide works of art). They’re sturdy, too, since the stoneware clay they’re made from makes ‘em microwave-, oven-, and dishwasher-safe. Now, go on and gather your favorite crackers and cheeses; we’ve got a glorious spread to dream up.
