These porcelain pieces are fired at the Kristoff workshop in Valbrich, Poland, one of the oldest and grandest porcelain workshops in the world. Kristoff has been making porcelain since 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.
Calamityware is a tiny, five-person, one-dog company headquartered in Pittsburgh. We love bringing the darkly whimsical view of our founder and chief monster-maker, Don Moyer, to life. Our products are high quality, meticulously manufactured items that make wonderful gifts for you and other weird-adjacent people in your life. Our goal is to make you smile.
So I had to have the robot Calamityware. You just don't see robots enough in tableware, in my opinion. Great design on a fantastic plate.
I originally backed this idea on Kickstarter, an was extremely happy with the end result. The plate is beatiful, the quality is superb, the hilarity is sublime.
Because of the import tax in Norway I had to pay the governement around 300million dollars to get it into the country, but I`m still getting a full set.
Buy it, love it, eat pasta on it, smile as the picture of beatiful weirdnes meets your eye.
and who wouldn't eat everything on their plate so they could see the calamitous prize that awaits? Worth it every time. Even with brussel sprouts.
These plates are the so fun and nicely made that when I tragically broke our first Calamity plate I ordered a new one within minutes so I could stop crying.
This is so original and ironic!
This was my first piece of Calamityware, purchased as a gift for me by my husband on Kickstarter, and I absolutely love it. The craftsmanship is meticulous, the design is amazing, and the overall effect is humorous without being cheesy. It hangs on our wall with other collectible plates from around the world, and it always gets comments. =)
These plates are beautiful and they have a giant robot on them, plus four bonus robots around the edge. And a kitty. What more do you need? Nothing. The sun will shine brighter, your food will taste better.
The crowning touch is the utterly nonchalant cat -- he knows that giant invading robots are suckers for kitties.
Would it be possible to extend the line into red willow? Not as traditional, I realize, but they'd work so well with the red BADbandanas (plus, I'd like something I can sneak in with my red willow plates).
Order arrived pretty quickly even during pandemic shipping and it's lovely. An amazing plate with a genius design.
I love this plate. Never get tired of looking at it.
