Handmade Dinnerware: Plates, Bowls & More

You’ve got your everyday dishes that get you through breakfast, lunch and dinner plus unlimited dishwasher cycles. And you’ve got your formal dinnerware that you use once — maybe twice — a year for very special occasions (thanks mom and grandma).

Here’s what you’re missing: Handcrafted dinnerware for those other occasions between daily meals and annual holidays that’s just “this much” nicer than your everyday dishes but not quite as fancy-schmancy as your good china.

Our collection of unique handmade dinnerware can be used for any occasion — romantic candle-lit dinners for two, Sunday brunches with your extended family, and cocktail parties with your closest friends. We’ve chosen plates and bowls that will look stunning on your table made from high-quality and sustainable materials — high-fired porcelain, glazed stoneware, aluminum and enamel, and hardwoods. Stop by and view our chargers, which could nicely complement your everyday dishes and fine china. And don’t miss the Black Creek Mercantile hardwood plates in small and large, which are made from ethically sourced maple wood.

In keeping with Shinbone Alley’s tradition of connecting the world’s finest craftspeople to shoppers like you who seek uncommon household goods, we present this collection of handcrafted plates and bowls. Let us know what time dinner starts; we’ll bring the board games

Are the dishes and bowls dishwasher safe?

Most of the dishes and bowls in this collection are dishwasher safe, except for the hardwood bowls and aluminum bowls. Refer to the care instructions for each product. High-fired porcelains, for example, are all dishwasher safe, and we suggest top-rack only.

Do you offer serving platters?

Yes! We take dining to the extreme offering everything you may need to host the perfect occasion. Shop our collection of platters for your favorite appetizers, cooked meats, and more. Check out the White Wood Stamped Platter made from high fired porcelain.

Are the dishes lead-free and food-safe?

They certainly are. We always ensure our makers adhere to safe materials and practices when making their dishware. Shinbone Alley believes in utility and beauty — the plates and bowls in this collection can be beautifully displayed when they’re not in use.
