Hand-thrown Dinnerware


Depending on her mood at the wheel, Lois Ruben Aronow’s work has the delicate look of egg shells or the roughness of a cantaloupe. This fabulous beaded texture is achieved by Aronow’s careful glaze formulation, application, and firing. But these nature-inspired designs aren’t just pretty little porcelain centerpieces; her new dinnerware line is made to weather the household storm of kids, in-laws, dishwashers, and microwaves. Her dishes will lighten up a dinner party of ten or liven up breakfast for one.
