Shipping and taxes calculated at checkout. Free U.S. shipping on orders over $200.


The third set of Calamityware dinner plates in a 4-plate discounted combination. Each porcelain dinner plate features a different calamity from Don Moyer's sketchbook—a plague of frogs, a jogging Sasquatch, a horde of rambunctious zombie poodles, and a menacing pterodactyl.

Dimensions & More Info
  • 10.5” diameter (26.5 cm)
  • Rich blue images on white porcelain.
  • Produced using the in-glaze decoration process. That means the image is slightly melted into the surface like the fine porcelain you see in museums.
  • 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.
  • Made at the award-winning Kristoff porcelain workshop in Poland.
  • Food safe.
  • Microwave safe.
  • Dishwasher safe.
  • Porcelain is both delicate and durable. We think you’ll enjoy Don’s blog about caring for your new treasures.

Where it's made

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.

What the what!!

When my beloved boyfriend told me he bought me some plates I thought, Huh? Then when I opened them I laughed, then oooohed and ahhhhhed excitedly. I pronounced very loudly, I LOVE THEM, THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!! I am now going to order a few mugs and a puzzle cause I love a good challenge. These are amazing pieces of art and I'm not sure I want to sully them by tossing food all over them. But I will because I want to see the masterpieces unfold with every bite. Keep the cool stuff coming, thanks.

Holy Moly!

I love these plates! I got a platter and bowls for my birthday so I had to go buy plates. Totally glad I did. At first I was going to save them for dinner parties, but screw that. I want to enjoy them every day. If one breaks, boo hoo. I'll buy another. They're too awesome to sit in the cupboard. Thanks for these creative designs and for making me laugh. More please!! (Oh, also, I love that they're blue because there aren't very many blue foods. So your food really stands out on the plate.)


I’ve been needing a new set of dishes, and truly have been searching for months with nothing quite fitting the bill until now. The price is a bit out of my range, but figured if I’m careful I won’t need to replace them, and... they’re art. I ended up starting my collection with some different plates and of course the monkey set. They are absolutely stunning and humorous and all together wonderful! Looking forward to what’s coming next!

Had to buy all 12

We started with the first four plates; we had to buy more. We need this humor to brighten our lives. We often ask which plate did you get! What fun.

love them!

I held off forever wanting to get two sets. Finally got them for my fiance birthday and Im soooo glad I did. They are amazing! I love using them everyday. What a great set!

Can't stop the calamities!

So far, we had the mugs, and plates 5-8, but obviously needed 9-12 for an 8-place setting (any chance 1-4 will ever be redone?) They're still in the box as they're my wife's Christmas gift, but I inspected them and they're just as great as all the others. Next up, salad plates and soup bowls! Can't wait until we have complete place settings and hold a formal dinner party

Monsters and Ants Everywhere!

These (full-size dinner plates with a variety of terrors and small plates with ants) provide joyful conversation at every meal. And people fight for their favorite, so there are a few minutes of bartering and bullying before the food is served. They’re great quality as well as charming design, so while I currently have four of each, I’ll be buying more!

Love these plates!

Excellent quality and great fun at the dinner table.

Zombie Poodles!

So my five year old son broke a fancy hurricane candle holder at a friend’s house. I looked for a replacement but I couldn’t find a matching one, so I bought him these four plates as an apology. Nothing says I’m sorry like zombie poodles.
(For what it is worth, I bought my wife all 12 of the plates for whatever traditional wedding anniversary is “China.” We use them as our regular everyday plates.)

They Live Up to the Hype

I had been looking at various plate combinations for months and finally decided to take the plunge and order them. We LOVE them so much! Words do not describe how beautiful they are. I now need to invite guests over and put them to use outside of the family! They are a must have if you like the unusual, different or extra!
