Shauna Mayben : Tide Sushi Plate
A beautiful serving set featuring the underutilized Abalone shell. The Tasmanian wild abalone industry is a major contributor to the Tasmanian economy. It is the largest wild abalone fishery in the world, providing around 25% of the annual harvest.
With all this harvest, there is an abundance of abalone shell that is discarded or ground up for gravel. A waste of a beautiful Tasmanian product.
These serving plates are an exclusive product, using the finest of Tasmanian materials. Food presentation is essential to the success of a dish as its taste and flavour. The way the food looks on the plate is what tempts our eyes and our palate.
These dishes are designed to evoke a feeling of opulence and exclusiveness. All the while being very strong and hardy. With care, the abalone, wood and brass will last a lifetime.
The Tide Sushi Plate was the Overall Winner of the 2018 Design Tasmania Award.
