Reinventing the fashion scene yet again Jenny Drury – founder of local label Ketz-ke is turning her stylish eye to homewares in a unique collaboration with Yon Kavvas of Claybird Ceramics.
Arriving just in time for winter entertaining the duo has dreamt up a stunning hand-crafted serving plate that follows on from a sell-out mug and side plate late last year.
Available in two striking designs – Splat and Drip – the serving plate provides a modern and chic backdrop to whatever you’re serving up whether you’re a master chef like Jenny or more of a ‘fresh from the packet’ type (no judgement here!).
Signature to Claybird, each plate is infused with Waihi Beach sand – a place of inspiration for both women and a connection that naturally drew the visionaries with the result this stunning collaboration.
Encapsulating the eye of both designers through a sophisticated yet playful approach to serveware – the plate is the perfect gift for the host with the most in your life or an ideal present to yourself that will make nights at home all the more inspiring this chilly season.
So you can enjoy the full ‘Ketz-ke at home’ experience we’ve even managed to get our hands on Jenny’s infamous coconut and raspberry cake recipe – the perfect excuse to get busy in the kitchen and invite friends around!
