Artist Micah Sweezie of Ceramic Noodles shows off a full-size car tire they made from clay. It took them weeks to create the 13-part mold from the original tire, and three days to cast the porcelain version. The finished piece is a statement on the dark history of French rubber plantations in Vietnam.
Luycho’s unique cups and saucers produce an animated image when turned. The trick is the series of lines on their saucers which reflect onto gold mirrored strips, creating the illusion of movement on porcelain mugs. They come in horse, bird, and cat designs with either a porcelain or wood saucer.
Villeroy & Boch’s unique porcelain dish sets form a spherical sculpture when stacked, so you’ll be happy leaving them on display rather than hiding them in a cabinet. Each 2-person set includes two flat bowls, two regular bowls, two plates, and a serving platter. We can’t help but think of the Death Star when we look at these.
Celebrate Halloween with these spooky salad plates from PATCH NYC and Crate & Barrel. Each glazed porcelain plate features a black and white woodcut design against a high-contrast color scheme.

Lifelike goldfish illustrations by artist Kim Rody adorn the three compartments in her porcelain Golden Trio serving dish, keeping things like olives, nuts, and Goldfish crackers in their place. Microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe. Amusingly, Rody’s various goldfish platters come with a month’s supply of fish food.
Seletti’s Gold My Robot adds a bit of wonder to any room. Designers Selab + Alessandro Zambelli created this playful decorative accessory inspired by robot toys from the 1950s and 1960s. But instead of being made out of metal, this robot is made from porcelain with a gleaming golden finish. Measures 11.8″ tall.
Pairing sake with sushi is eight times better with this swimmingly fine sake set. Artist Kim Rody converts her marine paintings onto fine porcelain tableware such as this 5-piece, 8-legged charmer based on her original painting “Out of the Blue Octopus.” Confession – we can’t resist serving calamari on the matching platter.
