Calamityware Dinner Plates / Don Moyer


The Willow pattern is both highly recognisable and also seeped in history. Still popular now, the (most commonly) blue and white floral style was inspired by the porcelain the English were importing from China in the 18th Century — and now graphic designer Don Moyer is creating his very own subversive version with Calamityware. Moyer’s deceptive designs seem — at first glance — like regular Willow plates, but upon closer inspection, all kinds of hell is breaking loose. From frightening sea monsters to swarms of flying monkeys, UFOs, pirates and giant robots, the plates’ tranquil scenes are being dramatically interrupted. While the first five plates in the project have been confirmed (some of which are already available for purchase), the final and sixth plate is still being considered; Moyer is tossing up between a volcano, Sasquatch, pterodactyls, bats, alligators and several other — unlikely and comical—invasions — via Cool Hunting
