Crackery Tableware


A sad fate awaits cracked china. With no real value on the secondhand market, most is relegated to the garbage. That is, unless Brazilian/Israeli designer Joana Meroz gets a hold of it. Based in the Netherlands, Meroz reclaims broken cups and dishes, which she transforms into her Crackery Tableware line for the Ornamented Life. Instead of trashing them, she chooses to "celebrate their imperfections" by glazing the crack with gold luster and adding a flower to the terminus. The finished product makes any imperfections seem almost deliberate. Tons of damaged dishes rejoice.

You can contact Joana through her website for pricing and ordering information.
