Michael Michaud's botanical tableware continues to dazzle. Fruits, leaves and bark are transformed into heirloom-quality plates, miniature boxes and serving pieces. His New York foundry is one of the few remaining that continue the ancient art of lost wax casting from natural objects. A new piece, the apple box, is now available and warrants close inspection.
