Faux Faux Plates


It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Lorena Barrezueta’s porcelain disposables.  Clever pieces that riff on the ubiquitous and mundane, the lowly take out container is elevated in porcelain and gold, down to the flimsy crinkles and dents.  I love them, but they’re a little out of my price range, a distant fantasy of another life, another paycheck.  On sale at Anthropologie, I was thrilled to find a derivative of Barrezueta’s idea – ceramic paper plates.  Not as refined and exquisite as Barrezueta’s pieces, but for $8 a pop, I’m content with it in this life and this paycheck.  I only bought two, since I like not love.  Maybe one day, I’ll be able to upgrade to the real thing.
