Home Decor imperfect perfection… March 9, 2009 …old, cast-off dinnerware is given new life as cracks and chips are filled with 24K gold and hand-made enamel floral transfers grow out of the damage…in these Crackery Crockery pieces by Ornamented Life.
I love rehabilitated dishware. These are amazing!
Wow, I love the 24k gold–so delicate..I wish I could own things like this without utterly destroying it like I probably would.
i love it!
Incredible and perfect! I’m in love! There is nothing better than when someone finds an new, clever and poignant way of making something that would otherwise be tossed, beautiful.
Super-cool! Maybe I’ll have to start being a little less precious about my good china 🙂
wow what a good idea! I have a couple cracked antique pieces that I don’t know what to do to fix them. so cool!
Ooh la la! These are beautiful!
Oh, wow! They truly look like they are meant to be this way. Add a nice little modern touch.
Beautiful idea! Just a drop of luxury.
That’s just brilliant!
These are so sweet! Love them
Just when you thought the recycled old plate trend couldn’t possibly get any cuter..it does.
What a great idea!
as a big fan of mismatched china, I’m in love with these.
How delicate and innovative! There are always ways to revive what you think is useless!
Brilliant idea – beautiful results!
love those imperfections… they give life…
“When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something has suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful.”
