Calamityware Plate 8: Vortex

$ 42.00
Title:
1 plate
4 plates
You know that sinking feeling when everything seems to be swirling down the drain? Well, now you can experience that calamitous sensation at meal times. In this design the entire landscape is bending into the insistent spin of a turbulent vortex.

Rich blue image on 10.5” (26.5 cm) diameter white porcelain dinner plates. Food safe. Microwave safe. Dishwasher safe. Produced at the award-winning Kristoff porcelain workshop in Poland using the in-glaze decoration process. That means the image is slightly melted into the surface like the fine porcelain you see in museums. This is the 8th plate in the Calamityware collection. Designed by Don Moyer and initially launched as a Kickstarter project in 2015.

Remember, all Calamityware plate designs are different—different borders, different images, and sometimes slightly different blues because the plates were fired at different times. They will look good together on your table or wall, but they won't be identical. If you are obsessive about matching, you should order multiple plates of the same design.

Porcelain is both delicate and durable. We think you’ll enjoy Don’s blog about caring for your new treasures.

run for your life!!!

I own every calamitous plate ever created in the entire universe so obviously choosing just one to get my name entered in the sock contest is almost a task beyond endurance. However, I love this one being measure because I am a fan of the vortex. This plate honors the vortex like no vortex plate from before or after. Believe me I know the truth!

I coveted this plate when I first saw it. Had to save up my pennies to afford a set of four. Even better looking in real life. The Vortex plates are my favorite of the plate collection. They reminds me of all the vortices which have sent my life spinning in other directions (like the punch bowl vortex on the river rafting trip) and the interesting lessons that have come from such. Things could have been worse. Nice weight; perfect dinner plate size. Eventually, I may get other dinner plates. The Vortex will remain my favorite...unless the Giant Snails come to the dinner plates.
