Rhodieware is named after the Rhododendron, the official state flower of Washington. The blossom is depicted in all the stages of growth, from bud to blossom. Traditional sumi  brushwork is used to reflect the influence of Asian art and culture to life in the Pacific Rim Basin. Designed for use as Western or Asian place settings and serving pieces, the lead-free glazes are dishwasher safe, oven and microwave proof.
