I love these little folded dudes! With the shape they flaunt they are better off being called bend-a plates! This slight bend given on the edge by the brilliant designer Angela Schwab from Denver is to facilitate pushing the food up onto your fork. I bet Angela, just like many of us, had a moment of something flying out of her plate trying too hard to get it over her fork! Even though you laugh about it now, the embarrassment can hardly be exaggerated. Saving your face are these benta plates, a work of pure empathy as well as genius. Get these today, the utility added gets equal competition from the look of these plates, the ceramic fold makes it resemble those very aesthetic creases on paper. Very artistic, very altruistic.
