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.
How cute is the cat, and getting to see him each time you take a sip? Now if only you released a tea bag tidy (like the regular Blue Willow one in my picture) my Calamities tea set would be complete!
My favorite Calamityware character surveys the world—and my breakfast croissants—from the center of these wonderful small plates. You can use them as saucers, too. My favorite piece.
I'm delighted by these saucers. Not only are they well made, like the mugs I have, and the tea set, but the feature the cute kitty :-) And they fit not just the mugs but apparently also the tea cups. I love everything from Calamity — thank you for making these! I needed them and you delivered!
It was my dad’s birthday and he is very much a cat guy, so I knew he would love these. He is also a muffin and bagel guy, and these are perfect for his afternoon snack! I love all of the calamityware pieces I own - they are so funny and clever, and well made.
These compliment my calamityware 12 place settings. They are so cute. Finally found the missing kitty.
As an artist who creates armageddon-based works, I of course resonate with these dishes. In addition to the creative theme, though, they are also beautiful, well made, and last forever. I recommend for personal acquisition as well as perfect gifts.
