Calamityware Small Plates w/Ants

$ 56.00

Set of four small dessert/salad plates to go with your Calamityware dinnerware. There are four different small plate designs and each includes one or more meandering ants. What a calamity! But there’s a bright side, too. With bugs on your plates, you’ll never dine alone. 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 museumsDesigned by Don Moyer and initially launched as a Kickstarter project in 2016. 

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

I don't like ants!

I love these plates, because I don't like ants!
I took a photo of one after I'd used it, so it looked like I'd found an ant under the food ;-)

When will you be having ones with spiders?

The ants look so real in person!

I loved these plates from the first time I saw them on the website and just KNEW I had to send them to my daughter-in-law. We have the same sense of humor. She lives 400 miles away from me, so I was only able to be on the phone with her while she opened the box. I could hardly contain my excitement. When she finally saw a plate, she slowly whispered, "They've got ants on them." She couldn't wait to serve her family dinner on them. She posted pictures of the plates on facebook an said, "My mother-in-law gets me." She sent me a video of the kids discovering ants on their plates. It was hilarious! When I finally visited her and saw the plates in person, I was amazed at how real the ants look. What a great gift!
