Pleinware was a concept developed by Lauren Tedeschi while she was at Rhode Island School of Design learning industrial design. She has continued the life of the project and expanded Pleinware to include any ceramic object for use beyond the table. Pleinware, inspired by artists painting en plein air or outdoors, is a playful response which questions whether a tableware needs a table to exist. Lauren invites others to lend their attention to eating habits beyond the table and is open and happy to hear about custom projects -- she specializes in small production, mid-fire, stoneware and porcelain. Each object is slip-casted from a custom mold(s), glazed and fired in her studio space in Oakland, CA.
