Like the Crackery Crockery from Ornamented Life that I shared with you a while back, Sarah Cihat’s Rehabilitated Dishware brings new spirit and beauty to tableware that had been condemned to a life of rejection. Buying dishes from second-hand stores and retailers’ seconds piles, Cihat re-glazes and modernizes them with a new color and new design. The results are delightful, graphic and playful, all the while making you feel good about giving a loving new home to (what would have been) a stray. Cihat originally started this study of sustainability and renewal as a project for her thesis, and now sells the unique pieces in select boutiques and online.

welcome, spring.

Spring is upon us. Since the season is all about rebirth and renewal, I think the Crackery Crockery from Ornamented Life is a fitting tribute. Each piece of discarded tableware is lovingly given new, unique life by the Danish designer. Chips and cracks are hand-filled with 24K gold, and out of the damage spring specially designed floral transfers. Love.
