Rich blue images on 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 museums.
Porcelain is both delicate and durable. We think you’ll enjoy Don’s blog about caring for your new treasures.
My first set of 4 place-settings were insect-less by choice - I wanted to make sure I liked the gorillas, poodles, sea serpents, and calamities before introducing bugs into the mix. When I decided I needed another 4 place-settings, I wanted to shake things up with the ants and flies combo. I'm still surprised by them when the plate is empty so that makes me laugh. I'm just a little concerned that guests won't share my odd sense of humor and fling a plate across the room when their fly or ant presents itself. Guess I should warn them ahead of time. Or not.
My daughter and her fiancée LOVE these dishes. I am actually quite jealous that I bought these dishes as a gift for THEM. I want a set for US!! They are sturdy and the designs are so much fun!
I got these for my wife for our 2nd anniversary and she loved them!
Love the artwork! The pieces arrived very well packed. Even though there was some external box damage, the dishes were all in perfect shape. I was worried they'd be super fragile and lose their artwork in a hurry, but they seem to be really durable. Not the kind of thing I'd use as my daily driver, but for sure I'll not be afraid to actually serve food on them when I've got guests.
Plus, the folks who run Calamityware are responsive good folks. I pinged them in response to one of their email blasts and they got back to me within the hour and were funny and helpful.
I could not be happier with my calamityware collection of dishes; currently on reserve for special occasions. These pieces express my love for classic china but in a charming and whimsical way; they are amusing, and lighten every occasion.
Best way to add flavor to any meal! A generous helping of humour will improve even the best prepared meal, serve on Calamity Ware!
I Love the very detailed and imaginative designs, extremely well made.
What a beautiful set. Everything is made well, it’s beautiful to look at and it’s fun. I’m so happy and my family loves the designs. Every plate has a different story. Great conversation pieces at meal time. Now to buy series 1 and 3. I’m truly happy.
I initially ordered dinnerware for 4 and loved them so much I ordered another set with different patterns. They are a hoot!
I love my Calamity Ware service for four. I’ve found myself thinking”Opps, there are ants on my plate!” But, I’m relieved to remember the ants aren’t real. It’s fun and elegant at the same time.
Excellent quality porcelain thanks to the skill of the potters in Poland. Smiles on the faces of those surprised by Don’s designs. In a tumultuous world, humor is supremely welcome. Thanks.
