Calamityware Plate 4: UFO Invasion

$ 42.00
Title:
1 plate
4 plates

A large-scale UFO invasion threatens the tranquility of traditional blue-willow dinner plates. They're probably coming for your bacon.

Rich blue image on 10.5” (26.5 cm) diameter white porcelain dinner plates. Food safe. Microwave safe. Dishwasher safe. Designed by Don Moyer and 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 museumsThis is the 4th plate in the Calamityware collection. Designed by Don Moyer and initially launched as a Kickstarter project in 2014. 

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.

Like dinner and a show

Isn't this a movie? UFOs attack Japan? UFOs attack ancient Japan? No? It's fun because it's so unexpected. The quality and detail is superb.

My husband loves all the 1950s sci-fi movies. I ordered extras of these plates for him. His favorite!

Zzzzzzzaaaaaap!

I would love to tell you this is my kid's favorite plate to eat off of but I can't. It's hanging on my wall! I can't have steak and taters slopped across my art!

Don Moyer designs belong in Museums! I love all the designs. The UFO, Giant Robot, and Flying Monkey plates are what caught the eye of my millenials. Don Moyer's patterns are intricate, sharp and unrivaled in originality and whimsy. I've collected almost all of the Calamityware blue plates (how did I miss the Octopus?). I appreciated and studied the original Johnson Brothers Patterns. The Calamityware Series 1 plates are slightly irregular only when they are stacked. You cannot see this irregularity when the plates are on the table. First series is also a little heavier than the Series 2 plates. All Calamityware plates will be appreciated by Blue Willow collectors and blue and white collectors. The Series 2 Kristoff-made porcelain plates are as fun as the first and more in line with the quality of traditional Johnson Brothers plates. The Kristoffs are exactly proportioned and uniform in shape and stack precisely. When Calamityware finds a way to glaze the under bottom rim of these fine plates it will have found perfection. If you have a collector's appreciation for dinnerware, these plates are for you. Unlike vintage dinner plates, these are microwaveable, and are themed for our time so my 20 y.o. kids appreciate them too. And the customer service is EXCELLENT.

Brilliant idea!

As a young adult out of college, I was excited to start getting "fancy" or "adult" items, like a fabric shower curtain and matching silverware. I was also excited to branch out from mason jars as mugs and chipped dinner plates. Lo and behold, the timing couldn't be better when I came across Calamityware.

Not only are the designs (at first glance) provoke an "oo la la" feeling but once you really take in the beautiful design, you notice the little and wonderful details. The sexy beams from the UFOs, the poor souls who are about to be abducted (or worse), and the little black cat who probably brought on the whole calamity.

I'm continuing to build my collection of Calamityware plates and every guest who has used these plates ask me where I got them. I immediately begin to gush about the Kickstarters and the other various Calamityware products. Not only are they practical for the 21st century (dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe) but they're a fantastic size for any kind of meal.

I literally squeal with delight every time I see that clean, white box in the mail after a Calamityware Kickstarter has been funded.

I have been eyeing calamityware for years and finally started my collection. But I never anticipated dinnerware bringing me such joy! I look forward to each meal. Even my worst creations pale in comparison to a UFO invasion! Each piece is so intricate, I find new details every time I use it. Meals taste better, my metabolism works faster, I think these plates increased my life expectancy. I can't say enough nice things about them! Buy these plates!

Very hi-end porcelain. Feels great. Fun to use. I have two plates, one frog plate and one UFO plate. Love them both.
