Earlier this year we identified the ceramic tray as one of the
18 Design Trends for 2018. The wide, circular ceramic tray with high edges makes a great container for tabletop veg or a collection of candles, or a hyper-elegant caddy for kitchen ingredients. Here are our current favorites. Above: From French ceramicist Ariane Prin of Prin London, the Rust Medium Tray 113 is made by mixing metal particles and oxidizing over months to get the finished effect. The tray, measuring 11.6 inches in diameter, is $635 at the Future Perfect. For more from Ariane, see our post Metallica: Artful Accessories from Ariane Prin.
