A friend of mine brought over a catalog from Brocade Home the other day and asked, no actually make that demanded, that I help her figure out where the plates in the background came from. I was a little stumped, they reminded me a bit of the ones from Working Class Studios, only each one looked unique. I was pretty sure I had seen them before, only I wasn't sure exactly where. So I told her to sit tight and that I would get back to her soon.
After a little bit of searching I discovered that these plates are Rehabilitated Dishware by Sarah Cihat. These plates, I actually remembered seeing in a bunch of magazines over the last few years, are all unique and are made from dishes bought at thrift stores. They are then reglazed and refired, resulting in a fun piece that is both spectacular to look at and a great use for old possible-landfill-fodder dishes. I totally love them, especially how they all look similar, and yet are very different. And I love how Brocade used them all lined up on the wall like that. There's more info on where to buy the dishware on Sarah Cihat's website and Clio has the 7" salad plates for $44.
Now that I've tracked down these dishes, do you have anything you need me to track down? Let me know and I'll do my best to find it for you!
