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.
Calamityware is a tiny, five-person, one-dog company headquartered in Pittsburgh. We love bringing the darkly whimsical view of our founder and chief monster-maker, Don Moyer, to life. 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.
My crockery used to be Spode and Wedgewood and Villeroy and Boch. Lots of florals and family friendly patterns. Those plates have all gone to other homes now so I can have flies and robots and zombie poodles. ZOMBIE POODLES. Does the world get more wonderful than that.
Calamityware isn't just for looks. Setting the table for Thanksgiving with Calamityware creates a homespun yet elegant vibe where paired with Waterford Crystal, Steiff Sterling Flatware, and Wedgwood China. Guaranteed to make your guests ooh and ah with a glance closer before they pile on the turkey and sides. The Zombie poodles are just for me.
But soft, what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Zombie Poodles have over-run. Black cat could care-less... And what do Zombie Poodles eat? Whatever calamity you put on the plate.
Margaret Campbell was right!
We need more poodle ware!
How cool is this plate!! My Standard Poodle even loves it.
Yes, these products are sufficiently silly and superb! The porcelain is durable and stands up to everyday use; the patterns have a stealthy wit that sneaks up on guests accustomed to conventional willoware. Plates mix nicely with plain white porcelain, and with more delicate bone china willoware patterns, as well as with Japanese blue porcelains. My order arrived quickly and the packaging is beautifully engineered to prevent damage. Highly recommend for gift giving and to enliven your own table.
What is scarier than zombie poodles? Poodles are smart dogs! Probably my favorite design and that’s saying something because I love them all! Highly recommend!
My mom has standard poodles and this made me laugh. Made her laugh too! She loves it! Arrived on time and intact and looks great!
Fell in love with the cups, and my SO really wanted the poodle plate, so I got it for him as a surprise. He was very happy to get it. High quality product, and very charming.
I love the design on this plate and I can't wait to see the looks on my friends' faces when they realize the zombie poodles staring them down under the ruins of their dinner.
