Designer Trixiedelicious at Etsy creates customized conversational dinnerware by vandalizing vintage plates. The ceramic plates are individually selected and hand painted with the profane expression of your choice.
Implications - The economic recession and the concurrent rise of DIY culture have created an optimal environment for professional and amateur creatives alike to create and sell niche creations that add a subversive slant to traditional items. These ceramic plates, for example, feature a custom-painted profane expression. They're targeted towards consumers who enjoy cheeky, personalized functional art and find humor in profanity. Companies can take advantage of this opportunity by reinventing traditional products with modern elements of pop culture, dark humor and slang expressions.
