Kitchen Table is the two Michelin Star dining experience of James Knappett and his team. The restaurant encourages full interaction with the chefs and showcases previously unseen kitchen theatre. This collection strives to provide elegant, crisp forms which encourage kitchen theatre. The form of the footed oyster bowl lifts and opens to reveal the exquisite oyster dish to each customer. The tea vase has a wide belly for handling and passing between guests. The cup and dish set has a clean and tapered form to encourage display and contemplation. I have developed a gentle glaze for the restaurant from the waste oyster shells of one of their food suppliers, Porthilly Oyster Farm. I wanted to reference the landscape but retain the high class elegance that Kitchen Table excel in. In December 2018 I visited Tim Marshall, farmer of Porthilly Oysters, and collected waste oyster shells to develop into a glaze. Over the past seven months I’ve been trialling the glaze and collection to enhance the dining experience at the restaurant.
