Calamityware Plate 3: Sea Monster

$ 42.00

A voracious sea monster threatens the tranquility of traditional blue-willow dinner plates. Imagine finding that bad boy behind your fish sticks!

Rich blue image on 10.5” (26.5 cm) diameter white porcelain dinner plates. Food safe. Microwave safe. Dishwasher safe. 

Designed by Don Moyer and p
roduced 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. This is the 3rd plate in the Calamityware collection. Designed by Don Moyer and initially launched as a Kickstarter project in 2014. 

Remember, all Calamityware plate designs are different—different borders, different images, and sometimes slightly different blues because the plates were fired at different times. They will look good together on your table or wall, but they won't be identical. If you are obsessive about matching, you should order multiple plates of the same design.

Porcelain is both delicate and durable. We think you’ll enjoy Don’s blog about caring for your new treasures.

Worthy of my sea monster BFF

This is a sturdy, good-looking plate I gave as a gift to my favorite weirdo. Turned out she already had Calamityware cups, so it was a perfect match.

Lovely plates.

I bought these plates for a little subtle humor in my vintage blue and white kitchen. They blend in nicely with my collection of transferware.

Best plates ever!

I bought this plate, fully expecting my husband to complain about buying dishes we don't have room for. Imagine my surprise when he not only loved this plate, but asked when we were getting more! Now I'm waiting impatiently for the Tentacles and Volcano plates to come back in stock (please bring them back).

Sea Monster eat pancakes

This plate is beyond good-looking. This has become my primary plate. I don't use any other. I use this plate when I host game nights. I've gotten nothing but positive comments about this dish. :)

Wonderful Plate!

I originally received this plate after pledging for it on Kickstarter, and I'm so glad I did. It was a house warming gift for a really good friend of mine and she loved it. She displays it proudly on one of her shelves! Quality wise, it is fantastic as well and came well packaged from what I recall.

My favorite plate

I love this plate! The design is reminiscent of old nautical charts, which is why I chose this particular plate.
When it arrived I was impressed with the level of detail in the design and the crispness of the glazing - there's no feathering of the edges.
And the plate has lasted well. I use it all the time and it still looks as good as new. Quality!

Well-made (and subversively normal-looking) plates!

These are some fantastic plates. I got six of them through the Kickstarter campaign -- gave two to my brother and kept four for myself. They've withstood several moves (on my part) and a household of small children (on his part) and only one of the six plates has gotten damaged.

I love them not only because they're super sturdy and functional but because they really do a great job of masquerading as normal Delft-esque tableware. I've thrown many, many dinner parties where guests will sit down and only after finishing their meal will they go, "waaaaait a second..."

Things can't get worse.

I'm collecting all the designs for my daughter. I've convinced her not to "save" them, but to enjoy using them everyday. I just got a text with a photo of a pancake breakfast on a broken sea monster plate. Won't you please reissue the first series?

Favorite Plate!

I got one of these fabulous plates via Kickstarter a few years ago. The plate is everything you could ever want - it has survived moving, microwaving, dishwashing, and looks brand new! I love this plate and wish I could afford all the designs Don turns out. Someday!

Nothing fishy about this plate...

Artistically, this has to be Don's best calamity! Just gorgeous. Even better in person.
