Blue Period

June 25, 2015

I have a thing for blue and white china. Delftware springs to mind, but it’s not so much pictorial plates that I gravitate toward, but rather ones with a simple, graphic design painted in inky blue on white porcelain. I love the simplicity of Sue Binns‘ distinctive stripe and Hermes’ Blues D’ailleurs reminds me of Moroccan tiles. Everyday life looks great on a Marimekko Siirtolapuutarha blue dot plate. But my favourite plate is Royal Copenhagen’s Blue Fluted –– a lapis blue pattern painted on ridged white porcelain –– of which Jason and I received twelve as a wedding gift. We don’t use them often, but even cucumbers look and taste Cordon Bleu when we do.
