We recently learned that June 17th is “National Eat Your Vegetables Day.” While we don’t typically partake in the typical “Instagram holidays”, this particular one reminded us of some of our favorite ceramic vegetables.
We absolutely adore our Lettuce Ware collection created by Tory Burch in collaboration with the estate of Dodie Thayer. Thayer, an iconic potter and artisan was known for her lettuce ware creations, which were collected by the Duchess of Windsor and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, just to name a few.
Thayer’s ancestors helped settle Palm Beach, where she taught herself how to mold pottery from lettuce and cabbage leaves. Her pieces became a staple amongst Palm Beach socialites. The pieces can now be found being auctioned by Sotheby’s and other auction houses.
The plates are absolutely functional but we like to think of them as pieces of art. We have a few pieces from our collection hanging and save the rest for tablescapes. Shop the collection below!
