Mad Hatter's stand
A tiered sandwich stand for The Fat Duck's Alice in Wonderland inspired course, Mock turtle soup. The brief was to design a flexible stand of 1-3 tiers depending on the size of table. Based on the mad hatter's tea party, we wanted the hat plates to look like it was floating in midair.
The asymmetrical shape and angle of the plate with its oscillating detail around the turned wood adds to the higgledy-piggledy fun and madness.
Material: Fine bone china, walnut, ash, purple heart.
