The Story

This exclusive collaboration is our first with Brooklyn-based industrial designer Olivia Barry who attributes her inspiration as an artist to two influential women in her life. Mentored in the love of clay and glazes as a young girl by her grandmother, Barry has also had the rare opportunity since 1998 to work side by side as assistant to the legendary mid-century ceramist Eva Zeisel of whom she says, "Eva's sense of joy and humor is visible in her work, and I have been fortunate to be a part of that process." The Spool design's creamy high-fired English earthenware shapes feature distinctive carved rims inspired by the natural lyrical patterns drawn in sand dunes by the shifting desert winds. The play of light and shadow on the surface frames the culinary center of attention with a festive energy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but too fragile My husband and I registered for these dishes and I think they are beautiful. But... they didn't fit in our cabinets and started to get hairline cracks after just a couple uses. I thought the cracks were part of the "look" until they started absorbing the color of the food they came in contact with. After I got a big red line down the middle of my serving bowl from a beet/arugula salad, I knew I had to return them. C&B was amazing with the return, as always. I'm still sad I couldn't keep them,, but I knew they wouldn't last very long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spool Dinnerware Absolutely love my new dishes! They are beautiful and can be used as casual or formal....because it is a beige/neutral color...you can put any color theme with it. I was a little disappointed in the cup as the hole for your fingers are a little smaller than my other cups, but just takes getting use to! All in all, beautiful set of dishes....I ordered 8 place settings and getting ready to order another 4 place settings to give me 12! I also ordered the side pieces and LOVE the FRUIT BOWL!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Classy Dinnerware This set has a very expensive look for a very good price. Just be aware that the dinner plates are a bit larger than normal and just barely fit in our cabinets. They are sturdy but elegant.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So close but... I fell in love with these dishes. I wanted something plain that I could make look fancy or casual for a meal in our newly redecorated dining room. Having read the reviews, I bought a tester set which did fine in the dishwasher. But when I washed the 2 sets my mom sent as a Christmas gift, many of the plates developed crazing (first time in!). I was so disappointed. The C+B manager said this was the "look" for this china, but not what I was hoping for. The store was very good about the return. Still I loved the pattern so much I have kept the serving pieces which I plan to hand wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely These are perfect. They can be used for casual dinners or dressed up for more formal occasions. The color is a perfect cream. The swirl design on the plates is a gat talking point. Have had them since Christmas and they have worn well in the month or so since.I have used them in the dishwasher at low temps and not had any problems.Almost didn't buy them, so glad I followed my impulse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Casual and Elegant You know how the average white plates are blah?These are very unique with the swirls and can be used as everyday dishes or classy enough for a dinner party or special occasion!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but... We purchased 12 place settings of this dinnerware. It is absolutely beautiful, and exactly what we were looking for. Yes, the color is a creamy white, not a bright white, and it looks simply fantastic on the table.When it arrived, we could hardly wait to unpack them and put them in the dishwasher so that we could use them. They washed well, and when we tried to put them away in the kitchen cabinets, we noticed that the cabinet doors did not close! After much research, we realized that these dinner plates are way larger than any other dinner plates, and simply do not fit in a standard hanging kitchen cabinet. (A standard kitchen cabinet is 12" with an interior space of 11." These plates are 11 1/4."). I have several other sets of china and stoneware and never had a problem with dishes fitting in the cabinets (Most dishes are 10 1/2").I called Crate and Barrel to see if there is a smaller plate, perhaps a "lunch" size plate that we could purchase or exchange for the dinner plates, but there is not. I am very disappointed because as much as I love this set, I can't store them. I am writing this post so that others will be aware of the odd large size of these dinner plates and measure their cabinets to insure that the plates will fit before they make this purchase.So, this really should be a 5-star product, but because it's such an odd size it only gets 3-stars. It saddens me, but I think I will have to return this whole order, even though I love the set... if only the plates were a half inch smaller--aren't we supposed to be eating smaller portions anyway?!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from concerns I bought 10 dinner plates10 salad plates and 10 bowls on line which add says microwave and dishwasher safe.....4 of the bowls have flaws which got worse after washing....looking at the back of product it says dishwasher safe low temperature - not how advertised on line....don't know whether the flaws got worse from dishwasher or not but I bought these as everyday dishes....they aren't cheap and should not be cracking

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dishes These dishes are just beautiful! I was so pleased when I opened the box and got my first glance at them. The only thing I was disappointed about was I thought they were going to be bright white and they're not. But never the less, I like them.a lot.
