Rehabilitated dishes by Sarah Cihat
With the holidays right around the corner, family and loved ones will soon be on our doorstep. If you're like me, then you probably want your serving platters to grab as much attention as the eco-friendly nibbles you plan on cooking. Though taking the time to shop at vintage stores to find just the right pieces sounds like a fun way to spend an afternoon, most of us just don't have the time to do so. Thankfully, NY Parsons School of Design graduate Sarah Cihat has done the leg work for us, and more!
Started in 2003, the rehabilitated dishware line has garnered her, and the eco-movement, a lot of attention in major media outlets. Her process is simple: scour places like Goodwill and Salvation Army for dishware; paint a 2nd, modern design over the top; then refire the pieces. What comes out are funky, edgy, yet somehow classic china that look equally powerful on the wall as they do on your table.
