Created in the late 19th century by German bacteriologist Dr. Julius Richard Petri, the Petri dish is one of the most vital items in the laboratory, used by life scientists for the cultivation and study of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. The microbes that flourish within a Petri dish often take on unexpected and remarkable colors and shapes.
The porcelain Petri dishes we have created draw inspiration from this essential research tool and capture its marvelous and beautiful magic using various combinations of color, glass, and crystal.
