Wish List Wednesdays: Laura Zindel Dinnerware Sets
Halloween is fast approaching, and Vermont ceramic artist Laura Zindel has the perfect dinnerware for the occasion. I happen to love the Tarantulas Dinnerware Set ($50 for a dinner plate) shown above. Intricate and accurate line drawings of several tarantula species adorn these creamy white plates, and the artist's attention to detail makes them true works of art. However, if spiders are not for you, perhaps you would prefer snakes:
Again, the artwork is amazing! There is also an impressive beetle design:
For the squeamish, the Black Birds Dinnerware Set may be a more acceptable option:
Of course there are other equally attractive collections for those who love the artist's work but are not interested in a Halloween theme -- the Botanical Collection is downright traditional! Be sure to check out the rest of Laura Zindel's ceramics, all of which are adorned with her unique and beautiful naturalist illustrations. She has even created a special collection for West Elm perfect for the Thanksgiving table!
