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.

I own every calamitous plate ever created in the entire universe so obviously choosing just one to get my name entered in the sock contest is almost a task beyond endurance. However, I love this one being measure because I am a fan of the vortex. This plate honors the vortex like no vortex plate from before or after. Believe me I know the truth!
Love these plates. Everyone who has seen them wants to know where I got them.
The detail in this plate is ratcheted up a notch. Very well done!
I coveted this plate when I first saw it. Had to save up my pennies to afford a set of four. Even better looking in real life. The Vortex plates are my favorite of the plate collection. They reminds me of all the vortices which have sent my life spinning in other directions (like the punch bowl vortex on the river rafting trip) and the interesting lessons that have come from such. Things could have been worse. Nice weight; perfect dinner plate size. Eventually, I may get other dinner plates. The Vortex will remain my favorite...unless the Giant Snails come to the dinner plates.
Graphics are clear snd crisp. Just stunning. And I love the pattern on the edge of plate. Very happy
Love it!!! The guy on the bridge, lol. I'm gonna start a collection.
