I just came across these adorable “chat plates” (2008) designed by Ikuko Nakazawa. They were created for Ceramic Japan, a company based in the Seto region of Aichi prefecture, well known for manufacturing several designy ceramics (namely Makoto Komatsu’s famous crinkle).

I’m thinking they would be perfect for a kid’s birthday party (little huey is turning 4 in January!)

Get them in the U.S. for $48 (UnicaHome) or in Japan for 3,800 yen (MoMA Japan)
