Shops We Love: CalamityWare.com

Ok so full disclosure, we came across this site via Facebook ads. Whatever magical targeting they used in order to reach us, it worked. If you are on the lookout for some off the beaten path, subversive but traditional dishware, allow us to introduce you to Calamity Ware.

Two words: Zombie Poodles. Later Blue Willow, hello cheeky chinaware. And this is just the beginning!!

Mother effing dinosaurs, people. This is something even the snobbiest of children can get behind, am I right? The collection actualy began in 2016 as a Kickstarter project and there is no wonder that it’s been as successful as it has with its clever twist on one of the most recognizable china patterns in western culture (can’t say ‘the world’ cause we aren’t really sure about the whole world so that’s would be assumptive and maybe rude?). The brainchild of retired graphic designer Don Moyer, the success of his initial release of plates has turned into a full time website featuring items borne of his desire to work on projects that are fun. Isn’t that awesome? Like fun for every day???

The original posse: Four-Plate Combo: Calamityware.com 1, 2, 3, and 4 (Currently Out of Stock But Back in Spring 2017) $196.27 CAD

Flying Monkeys. Giant robot. Sea monster. UFO invasion. What more does a well dressed table need? Oh wait…

There’s mugs.

And bowls. Fly included.

And don’t get us started on the textiles. And the prints. And the pocket squares! Enough!

Honestly, if you haven’t, do yourself a solid and check this site out. Ships to Canada and the US. And there’s always more pieces being added so if you’ve not registered anywhere yet for your wedding or have a big birthday present ask coming up…. Just saying….
