The Athena Design came from working with glass and visualizing how glass slumps in square bowls. This design can be used in glass slumping - but the shape is made to sell like hotcakes against any other square bisque dinner you might carry. The Athena is unique, classic and elegant. Why stay with the normal square shapes - expand your thoughts on how square ceramic designs can be decorated. It all starts with the shape and this shape is hands down a winner.
