Small plate by Dirk Aleksic

Dirk Aleksic spent ten years living in Japan, during which he was ordained as a Soto-Zen monk. Despite the fact that he returned to his native Germany in 2007, the influence of both traditional and modern Japanese ceramics lives on in his work. All of the plates, bowls and cups at our restaurant were made by Dirk – they are as minimalist as it gets, yet each one is absolutely unique.

Of course you can put the plates in the dishwasher without any problems, they can easily take that!

Please note that plate production might take six to eight months. It’d be best, really, if you come to pick up the chinaware at our restaurant, because there’s always a risk of breakage during shipping (try as we might to wrap them as securely as we can). If that doesn’t deter you, we’re happy to ship these beautiful pieces to you at your own risk. If something does break, there’s always the option of having them fixed up in the Japanese kintsugi-style: broken items are glued and the cracks are highlighted with a golden line to shed light on the object’s unique history.
