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.

Sasquatch reminds me what the neighbors might see if I went out jogging instead of eating my morning pancakes off this big beautiful plate. I along with the entire subdivision thank you Don.
Perfect gift for a Bigfoot believer! Now what about some Yetis for the rest of us?!
This was a gift for my hubby and he is thrilled. In 1972 he was on an official quest for Sasquatch - actually structured for credit at CSU in the wildlife biology dept. He always has a soft spot in his heart for Sasquatch and Yeti...so this plate doesn't quite meet the criterion of a "calamity," but we love love love it!
I bought 3 different plates as personal gifts.Each plate I picked reflects back to something each person has an obsession with . Sasquatch, my daughter is obsessed with finding. My husband wishes he was a pirate. And I being the wicked witch will share my food with my flying monkeys. I must admit I have fallen madly in love and hope to acquire a large collection to pass on to generations to come .
This matches my willow dishes, and just makes me smile when I see it!
This plate makes me happy every time I look at it. And never get tired of looking for all the little extra's in the Calamity Ware Universe!
I have been eyeing these plates for some time and decided to surprise my adult children with a set. The quality was excellent, they exceeded my expectations and my kids loved them and have gone on to order more. These make me so happy!!!! Thanks
What an incredible set of fun! I ordered a hand picked selection of calamities, beasts and bugs for 12 as well as a cookie jar for my furry beastie puppers. I just love all the clever designs. I can’t wait to see my guests reaction at our first big dinner party this weekend.
I plan on serving flies in my soup and ants with the salad and who knows what else!
Thanks a bunch. I LOVE it all.

I bought a mix of plates (various images). They arrived undamaged (yay) due to excellent packaging and just in time for Yuletide! They look visually brilliant and added the necessary flair to our 25 Dec pagan feast! Would recommend this company to anyone. Thank you again.
Sasquatch and companion Volcano plate arrived in time for Christmas dinner & came out again on New Year’s Day. Perfect way to close out this compound-impacted-goat-rodeo-in-a-flaming-dumpster of a year. Had not noticed the recurring cat in the designs, which we appreciate on behalf of Ursula (who is not allowed to eat from them.)
