Funny Catastrophe Illustrations Camouflaged as Dainty Plates


Take a closer look and you’ll find that the ornate decor found on these porcelain dishes tells a bit of a surprising story. Graphic designer and founder of Calamityware Don Moyer has replaced the typical landscapes and peaceful nature scenes of traditional willow-pattern dinner plates with destructive alien invasions, robot attacks, and flying monkeys.

Moyer believes that “too many plates have been too boring for too long.” So, he creates these hilarious line drawings where tranquil moments are invaded by impending doom. Erupting volcanos, sinking ships, and burning buildings are surrounded by elaborate graphic patterns, all of which have been hand-drawn by the artist. He produces playful drawings that fit within the specifications of the circular dimensions. The artwork is then transferred to the plates and fired in a kiln for 4 hours to set the illustrations. The entertaining final products will definitely add a touch of humor to your next dinner party.
