Calamityware Small Plates: Now What?

$ 56.00
Title:
1 set (4 plates)

Set of four small dessert/salad plates to go with your Calamityware dinnerware. There are four different small plate designs from Don Moyer's sketchbook each with a different calamity: Bat Blizzard, Giant Snails, Dodo, and Stink Eye. The small plates will accommodate sandwiches, light meals, salads, snacks, and all manner of desserts.

Rich blue image on 8.25” (21 cm) diameter white porcelain 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. Designed by Don Moyer and initially launched as a Kickstarter project in 2019. 

Remember, each plate design is different—four different borders and images. The blues in this set of small plates will match each other. And, although they will look good with your other Calamityware dinner plates, the blues may be slightly different from the plates because they were fired at different times.

Porcelain is both delicate and durable. We think you’ll enjoy Don’s blog about caring for your new treasures.

Highlights of all that mumbo jumbo above:
• Set of four different plates
• 8.25" (21 cm) diameter
• Porcelain
• Food safe
• Microwave safe
• Dishwasher safe

The perfect little plate!

I have wicked bad arthritis in... well, everywhere. Because of this I have mainly had really boring unbreakable dishes as I have a terrible habit of dropping things when I try to carry them. I wanted that snail plate so badly that I made a deal with my home aid... I do not pick up the plates, I just enjoy eating off them when she brings me my food. But, because nothing is ever perfect and I've definitely needed to pick up the plates I have found that they don't just shatter upon hitting the floor, to my immense relief. I won't say that I feel safe carrying these dishes around, but I feel so much better knowing that it would take some effort to break them.

Almost perfect

I love the artwork--it was an immediate sell. The only thing that would give it all stars would be a darker cobalt blue on the transfer. I have been collecting Blue Willow and other blue and white china for 35 yrs. If the calamityware was a dark blue, it would let me easily mix and match with my other pieces. If I learn that you darken the pattern in future runs, I would gladly buy more.

My husband and I were married young and never got to do the old tradition of picking out a China dinnerware set. This year is our 30th wedding anniversary and were are so happy to have Calamityware as our choice! Love the quality and colors, brings a smile to our dining adventures!

Small Plates

Anxiety eating making my head look small and body expanding. Small plates as amusing as the larger dinner size. The Stink Eye especially helpful reducing portion size.

Wonderful set

I already had the dinner plates (8 and counting) and adore them...so was ready to add some small plates. I only wish that there were more designs in this size as well!

Perfect starter

I have been wanting to buy EVERTHING I have seen, but restrained myself (for the time being) until I saw these small plates. They are a wonderful way to start collection. I think my food tastes better....that's my story to keep investing. Dishwasher safe is icing on the cake!

I love these!

I'd been ogling these for months before splurging--I didn't need these, I wanted them. When I was a kid I had a blue willow tea set that I adored, so finding these incredible patterns was a delight. I have waaaay too much dish ware, and these were a bit pricey for my budget, but a cash birthday gift tipped the scales for me. Am now waiting for the 20 ounce mug pair to become available. Thank you Calamityware team for the joy.

So fun!!

These plates are great. Very good quality but also lightweight and easy to store. Perfect for a sandwich or snack time. I’m excited to replace the rest of my dishes with Calamityware!

More! More! More!

I broke one of the Ant small plates, and was very sad to have done so, but glad of the excuse to get these plates as well.
The smalls are the perfect size, and amusing, to boot!
Love my Calamityware.
