I love my beautiful dinnerware from Kari ceramics. I got several compliments from dinner guests. The unfinished and irregular outer edges give an added interest to the dishes. Communication with Kari was great. The shipment came amazingly fast and each piece was carefully packed in bubble wrap. Out of 8 place settings, I only lost one bowl to breakage which Kari has sent me a replacement for. Highly recommended for unique, beautiful, and heavy duty dinnerware.
