Bonus Bone: Crackery Crockery

Crackery Crockery Plate no. 14 by Ornamented Life, at Horne

What a knock-out way to find beauty in a major flaw. Oranamented Life makes old cast-off dinnerware the star of the show by filling cracks and chips with 24K gold and hand-made enamel floral transfers. Each piece is (obviously) a unique piece of art.

For these reasons, I, Porcelain, declare this a Design Boner.

This plate was in my Gourmet magazine this month!

Hey Sarah,

Oh that is gorgeous! Holy Price tag, Batman!!!

And can I just say that I'm totally heartbroken that Gourmet is closing!!! Seriously my favorite food magazine. Great articles, recipes and gorgeous photos. I'm going to tip something expensive (maybe a snifter full of cognac) on the curb for my foodie homies when the final issue comes out.
