Button Wednesday : Button Crockery

It is Wednesday again, so it's BUTTON DAY on my blog. It would be great if you could do the same; make your Wednesday a button day too. Have you seen a lovely, beautiful, stunning, crazy button or button-related thingy, or did you make something with a button / buttons, or did you even make buttons yourself, blog about it on your blog on Wednesday, and give the link here via Mister Linky at the end of this post.

I blogged in 2009 about the above ceramic plates from Dutch designer Kiki van Eijk. Since then I found more crockery based on buttons, and this Button Wednesday will be around these wonderful objects.

These plates are from the Australian company "have you met miss jones". Jennifer Jones makes amazing designs and some of them feature very high on my shopping list at the moment. Although the button holes seem to need some accustoming.

The above plate is the Button Plate by Studio Job from the biscuit collection for Royal Tichelaar Makkum, which is the oldest delftware company in The Netherlands, established in 1572. Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel are Studio Job. I love it that such a traditional company also features modern Dutch designs.

Japanese designer Kaori Arimura from Product BonBon even sews the button plates !

And last but not least, the lovely button ceramics from Irish company Avoca are made to make you smile.

!!!!!!!!!! If you have something for The Button Wednesday, give Mister Linky your name and the link to your button post !!!!!!!!!!!!!
