Feast Your Eyes: Dinner Plates Designed to Reflect Your Digestion Leah Piepgras' Consumption Dinnerware

If you were to sit down to a desert on one of Leah Piepgras' plates, you might find an anus or an esophagus—or at least an artistic representation of an intrinsic part of your digestive system.

The line of "Consumption Dinnerware" is designed to make diners think broadly about consumption and the human body and each of the five plates maps out a part of the digestive system. She writes:

They are a reminder of the processes that are taking place within you while you are eating, promoting an exercise in mindfulness.
