Traditionally, fine china designs are treasured and passed down through generations of families. The recognizable inky blue and white patterns is beloved for its intricacy and delicacy, but these designs bring a toughness to this material.

Designers are juxtaposing porcelain prints with objects that are disposable and prone to destruction, contrasting the fragility of fine china with objects that will inevitably end up in the landfill like crumpled beer cans and disposable paper cups. As well, items like cars, computers and weaponry featuring the print conjure associations to destruction.

The iconic print is being easily replicated with digital technology and remixed with modern graphics like tattoos and graffiti. These porcelain-inspired designs give fine china a new attitude and strip away its preciousness for functional contemporary objects. Stats for 26 Tough Fine China Designs Trending: Older & Average
