Not Your Grandma's Dishes {any more}

{Rehabilitated Dinner Plates}

I was instantly smitten with the work of artist Sarah Cihat, 
when I came across her irreverent dinner plates over at Horn. 
Ms. Cihat, describes what she considers to be
a successful day on the Horn site:
"Arriving at my Brooklyn home 
with an armful of otherwise hopeless dinnerware,
saved from local thrift stores and flea markets."
Sarah then rehabilitates each piece with a complete  
re-glazing that includes the addition of a playful silhouette.

Her work is "green", beautiful and incredibly creative.
What's better than that?
