Rehabilitate The Plate.

Brooklyn-based designer and Parsons School of Design graduate Sarah Cihat recycles dishware. As part of her thesis she took old, forgotten dishes from places like the Goodwill and turned them into fabulous works of art. Unwanted ceramics are given new life as she resurfaces and redesigns them, creating her own unique collection. The dishes are then re-glazed and re-fired. Lovely silhouettes with graphic patterns in amazing, shiny colors. I love her themes, too, from skull & crossbones to dapper gentlemen to moose (what is the plural of 'moose'?). Too good to eat off of, but you can.

I saw some in a shop in LA. They seemed to run about $60 a plate. Expensive! They look cute, though.

Moose is like sheep. The word doesn't change from singular to plural.
