Whitney smith is a ceramics artist from Oakland, California who sells her food-safe dishware on etsy. Her items would be adorable for a wedding, tea party, or any excuse you can find to eat a piece of cake.

One of my favorite pieces of hers is the nesting lotus bowl.
All pictures of her pieces were found on her website.

Here's the result:
