This simple, beautiful, and functional place setting is part of an entire tableware and bakeware collection designed by Sophie Conran, an English food writer with her own gourmet pie company. Conran infuses her namesake tableware with a flowing organic nature and tactile expression, as evidenced by the ridges and dipped rims that recall handcrafted pottery. Made of porcelain expressly for Portmeirion, the collection comes in glossy white with select pieces available in cool blue celadon and a creamy biscuit color.
Four pieces make up this individual place setting: an 11-inch dinner plate; 9-inch salad plate; 6-inch cereal bowl; and 12-1/2-ounce mug. Each piece shows the wavy, slightly uneven sides or rims characteristic of this rustic yet modern collection. Lightweight yet incredibly durable and chip-resistant, the porcelain is safe for use in the freezer, microwave, oven, and dishwasher. A full range of serving pieces, bakeware, glassware, and linens is available to complement the dinnerware, a pattern for those who appreciate life's simple pleasures. --Ann Bieri
