A compendium of craft masquerading as art, art masquerading as craft, and craft extending its middle finger.

File Under: Why the Hell Didn't I Think of That?

James Victore is an amazing graphic designer--you'll probably recognize a lot of his images if you visit his website. He has a way of balancing wit, controversy, and amazing design.
Now, it seems Mr. Victore has dipped his pinkytoe into the art/craft world with his "Dirty Dishes" project. I can't find a website for the gallery, or a single image of his plates, but the invitation to his new show, sponsored by Design Within Reach, is shown above. Supposedly, the show involves 100 plates with racy drawings on them. "Acts of Dining Disobedience"...that sounds okay by me. The opening reception is on Thursday, Nov 10th, 6-9pm. Design Within Reach, 408 West 14th Street, NYC (Between 9th & 10th Avenues). For other dining disobedience, check out Sarah Cihat's "Fifty-Cents" dinnerware, and yours truly's humble Pottery Liberation Front.

Thanks, Petter!
