12 Identical Things-Could-Be-Worse Mugs
Rich blue images on white porcelain dinner plates. Food safe. Microwave safe. Dishwasher safe. Designed by Don Moyer and 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.
My daughter, an artist, first alerted me to the mugs--I was smitten from my first impression, and moreover the designs stuck in my mind. I ended up ordering the dinnerware for 12--my first full matching set ever. Beautiful and sophisticated size, shape, weight, quality, and the details and character of the designs bring a lot of joy. I bought these back (not that long ago, ages ago) when it seemed there were day to day catastrophes. Now, here we are (moving into April 2020) and our relationship with this art grows more complex as it nourishes.
My wife and I love Calamityware. She first got mugs and bowls, now I got her the Dinnerware set of 12 for her birthday. Calamities are front and center these days and, as a Family Physician, she is in the thick of it. Here is a picture of her about to go to work, holding the Fur Balls bowl, which looks eerily like the coronavirus...
I purchased a set of the Things-Could-Be-Worse mugs at Christmas-time, gave three as gifts and kept one for myself. My friends LOVE them!! The classic Blue Willow is nostalgic, yet the calamities add a bit of quirk that’s awesome! One friend has made it her work mug and says coffee never stains and the handle stays cool out of the microwave. Well done!!
All I can talk about is my Calamityware. I first ordered the Things-Could-Be-Worse coffee mugs and I was hooked. I enjoy the delightful humor and wanted more, so I ordered the 12 place settings of dishes. I couldn't be happier. Great quality and exquisite humor. I smile at every meal.
