09/28/16 Fine Bone China by Univers ATBP.
At the Filipino table, there is always room for an extra guest (or several). The proliferation of paper plates and drinkware is proof of this unconditional hospitality. Where we find pleasure in accommodating more, the dishes that draw us to the dining table or carinderia—our general store, our neighborhood eatery, our pillar of community—should simply be ready for replenishment.
Univers ATBP celebrates this sense of Filipino festivity through a dinnerware set made from fine bone china. Crafted by local artisans in porcelain so fine that it’s translucent, a teacup or soup bowl in the form of an everyday paper plate or cup illuminates the Filipino’s easy-going nature. With once-disposable dinnerware rendered collectible, Uni ATBP elevates a sociability as rich as the cuisine we share over family gatherings and neighborly catch-up at the sari-sari store.
As Filipinos have made welcome an art, this is an enduring and most elegant way to pass it on.
