Created by artist Gregg Moore, Blue Hill's Grass-Fed Bone China uses the 18th-century practice of kiln-firing and slipcasting bone to create stunning translucent cups and plates out of 100% discarded bones from our kitchen. This set includes a Bone China tea cup and an accompanying saucer made from 50% Stone Barns soil and 50% black porcelain. The set explores deep connections between the soil and life aboveground on the farm.
