These porcelain pieces were fired at the Kristoff workshop in Valbrich, Poland, one of the oldest and grandest porcelain workshops in the world. Kristoff began making porcelain in 1831, and its work can be found in museums and in the palaces of royalty. Our porcelain designs are in-glaze, which means slightly melted into the surface of the piece, to ensure a beautiful crisp image for years to come. Photo by Porcelana Krzysztof Sp. z o.o.

Now have all the plates, pasta bowls, small plates, shallow bowls, side bowls, mugs (with big mugs to come) tiny plates and serving platers. An addiction I can’t control - this is used every day as my main flat ware. Why should art and humour be saved for walls or best. I love my flying monkeys
My husband's initial reaction was that I had bought very traditional bowls. I told him to look harder. These are our favorite for pasta, rice dishes, desserts and other dishes where a shallow bowl works better than a plate.
These little monsters have made the eating lunch at home day after day after every single day time way more fun! Plus the smaller size helps keep our portions more sane. Love them so much!
I bought these as a gift for my grown daughter, who went on and on and on about how cool they were. We'll keep adding to her collection on special occasions.
Whatever you put in these, including dorm room Ramen bring it to upscale cuisine.
Love these bowls! Engaging and amusing and perfectly useful! Thank you. Carry on, by all means.
My grandson and I love to dine. I’ve been collecting Calamityware through out 2019. He has a service of four now. I will continue to collect the dishes. Everyone loves them! They are beautiful! I need to pick up series 1&2 of the dinner plates, more mugs. I was delighted with the small bowls and plates offered in the kickoff. I love each dish being unique.
I got these as a gift for my wife and am getting as much pleasure from using them as she is. They really are wonderful bowls for soup, stew, Chana Masala, basically anything you might want to enjoy out of a shallow bowl. We love the playful patterns and these really are functional, well made bowls. I have a feeling Calamityware will soon be invading and taking over the rest of our cabinet space.
I love adding a touch of whimsy in every room of my house. These dishes fulfilled that wish. I like that they look traditional until you get closer and find that there’s more than you expected.
