Teff for Two
In Ethiopia, eating is done without the aid of utensils. Meals are shared on a large, round platter called a gebeta. A spongy, slightly sour bread called injera is put on the tray and on top of it are various stews and curry-like dishes. Coffee service follows nearly every meal and is accompanied by toasted barley or popcorn.
This table-top collection adapts eating practices from Ethiopia to an American audience. Forms and functions are inspired by the meal traditions, pattern designs and the landscape of the country.
