delft blue

For several years now I am collecting blue and white tableware. I have found a lot of plates, bowles and mugs in the recycle store but there are also some fine new pieces. A friend of mine gave me a nice blue and white Japanese bowl with spoon. It all mixes very beautiful together.  How nice are these?
The water jug and mug "New Delft" was developed based on the strength and value of the authentic 17th century pottery production in Delft. The design was developed in collaboration with Jacob de Baan, Marjet Wessels Boer and Margit Seland. The design is modern and contemporary, while the decoration is inspired by the ancient markings and signatures of the owners. There are plates in different sizes and a wine jug. via  LaVieJolie
This mug is one of a set of 4 patterns. Poem is a motif of Thai proverbs. This is a fair trade product.

Table stories by Tord Boontje  This collection is a rich graphic narrative on everyday ceramic plates, bowls and glasses.The drawings for the plates are filled with flowers, deer, squirrel, birds, bear, butterflies, horses, bunnies and a peacock. The animals and flowers seem to merge and to grow out of each other. Some of the elements we have hidden inside the patterns, there is for example a hidden mouse in one of the plates. Over time you can discover new elements while eating. via NordicNew-online
