These porcelain pieces are fired in Poland at one of the oldest and most accomplished porcelain workshops in the world. The Cmielow team traces their start to 1790. Work from these craftspeople 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.

Our products are high quality, meticulously manufactured items that make wonderful gifts for you and other weird-adjacent people in your life. Our goal is to make you smile.
I love these little plates. They are the perfect size for so many things: a snack, a light dinner, a dessert. They remind me so much of my grandparents "fancy" plates but these are so much more fun. We love eating off of them every day. They are also very easy to clean.
I purchased these through a Kickstarter campaign and as soon as they came in, I had to purchase more. Then, once those were in, I talked my husband into replacing all of our dishware with Calamityware! The pieces are sturdy, interesting, and always bring about conversation. If you're on the fence about purchasing, I can tell you right now that you should get these. Now I'm off to say the same thing about the shallow bowls, which are also amazing!
How do you calm Big Foot, asteroids and prehistoric critters? Give ‘em cookies! That’s my excuse, anyway. Nice size, great quality as always. Glad I added these to our collection.
