Who We Are

“The manner of what we make defines us.”

We make dinnerware because we love to entertain- not in the stuffy, formal way, but in the belly-laughing-until-you-cry sort of way.

We love gathering around the table, with good food, drink and lots of stories. We believe cooking is a creative way of expressing love, and sharing that with family and friends brings us much joy. To us, making it all look beautiful is a real part of that experience. When we didn't see dinnerware that reflected our sense of chic, classic style, we started designing and making the dinnerware we wanted to use. Our unique blend of classic and contemporary pieces are easy to mix and match, and make it simple to set a table you love.

At Caskata we feel very lucky. As designers, we’re free to choose our inspiration from anywhere in the environment and the culture around us. We’re creators, and we get to make things of beauty from nothing. We start with an idea – then we draw, we edit, we manipulate, and we express our ideas. Ours is a design process rooted in the practical, the useful, the things we hope to never tire of… and that bring us joy every time we take them out and that gives it a wonderful relevance for the way we live today.

It’s part science and part art what we do. We care passionately about each step of the way, and I think you see this care in our pieces – they’re unlike anything else out there. They’ve got a point of view and a sense of humor. We really do believe that the manner of what we make defines us – from the initial idea to the shipping box you open. We’re grateful to you for embracing our pieces, bringing them into your lives, and joining us on this journey. Thank you for helping us spend our days doing what we love most. We look forward to being a part of your lives for years to come.
