Item details

Artist Jessica Egan was commissioned by chefs Anna and David Posey—(pictured) owners of Elske, a Nordic-influenced restaurant in Chicago’s West Loop—to create this set of cobalt blue ombre plates, along with pink and white dessert bowls, and color-dipped vases.

"My favorite part—and it does evolve—is collaborating and prototyping,” says Egan, whose tableware is produced under her Little Fire Ceramics brand name. "That’s where I get to explore new forms and work with other people, especially chefs or restaurateurs, because they’re thinking about plating. They’re thinking about these different aspects of functionality that maybe I wouldn't have thought of."
