Say goodbye to boredom. Perhaps nothing thrills like the cold tickle of inquisitive tentacles. Imagine finishing your meal and finding a giant octopus behind your calamari!
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 7th plate in the Calamityware collection. Designed by Don Moyer and initially launched as a Kickstarter project in 2015.
Porcelain is both delicate and durable. We think you’ll enjoy Don’s blog about caring for your new treasures.
I like hugs, but i'm not certain that I want to be ensnared in these tentacles! I have purchased plates 4, 5, 6, and 7 and I love every one of them! They are durable, attractive, and very clever! Keep up the good work, Don!
Octopuses are pretty much my favorite sea creature and it is a pleasure to have one on a plate. Especially when the plate is as beautiful as this one. The quality of the workmanship is amazing. I've put my plate through the dishwasher quite a few times and it still looks like new.
They say these plates are microwave and dishwasher safe but I could only tell you they're wall safe. I have all my hanging up! Tentacles is a welcome addition.
1800s Blue Willow meets 1940s Sci Fi. What a surprise that fisherman is about to receive! Who can resist these quirky plates? Not me. Another happy customer here.
I love these plates! Perfect for the quirky in all of us! High quality, durable, and awesome to look at. You will never have a quiet moment at a dinner party when you use these plates, creative conversation abounds! Tentacles is a must have for the Calamityware collector!!!
Live on your own dinner table: Another must-see, must-own, must-eat-from plate, brought to you by the Creators of Calamityware.
...about this series is serving dinner on them to unsuspecting houseguests who always start off wondering why my sense of style has suddenly veered to the classics, before taking a closer look and realizing the doom and dismay that lies before them (and no, that's not a commentary on my cooking :D).
Pretty enough to display, sturdy enough for constant use, these are terrific.
Spoiler alert - Don't read this review if you like hunting down all the tiny details in the plates...
We've been collecting the Calamityware plates since Plate 1. My 4yo daughter is always excited when a new plate comes but this one is her absolute favorite! She insists on using it with every meal. She loves looking for all the little details in the border pattern ("Look! It's the little fat spaceship! I found the bus! There's a little kitty face!"...) and we love finding them with her.
Because this plate is so detailed, we've gone back and looked over all the other plates to try and find little details that we may have missed. We've found a few but she still won't give up this plate!
Growing up with souvenir blue and white transfer ware plates supplementing vintage Wedgewood, Calamity Ware always brings smiles and laughs to the table. The octopus adds to the adventure and brings out the diver in each of us. Oh that they would be so visible underwater!
I love this plate. It's just the best. The octopus design is fantastic-- the depth of the octopus is specifically striking. The quality of the plate is super-- I use it for everyday eating (whenever I need a little more tentacle in my life) and run it through the dishwasher, and it's not even phased.
