The handmade quality of this plate is evident in the subtly curving, organic lines.
The Cake Plate is made by hand through a process of slip casting. It features a soft white glaze on the outside and a glossy light blue and pink glaze inside. Made in Nathalie Lautenbacher's studio in Kauklahti, Finland.

Studio Nathalie L. focuses on the small scale production of porcelain tabletop wares. All of her products are handmade in her studio in Kauklahti, Espoo. Finnish-French ceramist and designer Nathalie Lautenbacher (b.1974) graduated 1999 from the University of Art and Design, Helsinki, from the Department of Ceramics and Glass. Lautenbacher also works as a designer for the Finnish ceramics and glass industry, Iittala and Arabia brands. Since 2002 she has worked as a lecturer at the Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Helsinki. Nathalie says, "Culturally ceramic vessel shapes refer to something simultaneously very permanent and fragile. In my newest works I consider the idea and value of searching and preserving as relevant themes. Vessels are like shelters, idea keepers.”
