If you ask Nate Mell and Wynn Bauer, the best supporting actor in a meal is the plate. They should know: Their Port Richmond-based ceramics line, Felt + Fat, has been the secret of Philly’s top chefs — including Eli Kulp and Nicholas Elmi, both of whom have worked with the duo on custom dishware for their restaurants — since it launched in 2013. Their tonal porcelain, best when rendered in marbleized pastels, is predominantly available by special order, but Mell and Bauer are launching a Kickstarter this month to take the line to retail, so home cooks can serve in style no matter what’s on the menu. From $25 to $64; feltandfat.com.
