Laura Zindel Ceramics. Fascinating. Dishes with pictures of various creepy crawlies and a few butterflies and birds.
I’ve always been fascinated with pretty and unusual dishes and when I was a kid I dreamed of someday having a dozen or so complete sets – one for every meal of the week plus some special sets for each holiday – Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc. You know… any excuse to buy every pretty set of dishes I see. In reality I have very few dishes and no room for any more. My “good dishes” are a late 70s set of blue and white Corelle and they are rapidly becoming my only set of dishes as the plastic dishes are cracking one at a time from age and too many trips through the dishwasher. My original plan was for the Corelle set to become my “everyday dishes” when I could afford “good china”. I really have no need for “good china” because when we have people over we usually use paper plates. Practicality is sad.
Anyway, Laura Zindel’s creations are very interesting. They’re art pieces so they’re rather expensive and I’m not sure I’d want to actually use them (and I’ve never liked the idea of having dishes that are “too good to use”. I like pretty dishes but I want to use them.) but the mugs are tempting. One can always find room for another coffee mug. 20 ounces is too large though so I’ll pass. Sometimes also I have to find excuses not to buy things.
