The Fifty United Plates by Corbé

The Fifty United Plates by Corbé

Corbé is a ceramics and design studio in Detroit, Michigan. They have found their purpose in making useful ceramics and thoughtful objects for your hands, homes and kitchens.
Handcrafted by Corbé, The Fifty United Plates Map set pays homage to all the hardworking people (makers, farmers, and doers) all across the country in a collection of porcelain plates that fit together creating a three-dimensional map. Spanning 7 x 4 feet, the set merges newer prototyping technologies with the traditional ways of crafting ceramics, focusing on both materials and craft. The collection was first introduced via their successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2013 and now after two long years, they’ve completed the project, all in the city of Detroit.
