“D. Frank Designs, a small interiors studio, carries Arizona illustrator Christopher Jagmin’s dinner plates. Although they are certainly casual enough for everyday use, his rounded-square porcelain “canvases” of regional trees (palm, Joshua, two kinds of cacti) could also be considered art prints and souvenirs.”

Country Kitchen gone wild
“Welcome to my Tom Jones rock ’n roll breakfast nook!” McDonald says. “I tend to start with old-fashioned things, but once there’s a flow, I get funky.” Here, she began with classic marble-topped cabinets and a traditional banquette, then kicked up the mood with exuberant zigzagged black-and-cream wallpaper, and faux-snakeskin upholstered chairs, plus clean accents – a Saarinen-esque table, graphic numbered plates and a plastic German light fixture.

New from Christopher Jagmin: Recycled Plates
The following plates are from a new collection that was introduced at the August New York International Gift Show. I find “orphaned” plates from estate and garage sales, and flea markets, and put an updated twist on them. The plates are polished, and decaled with three of my new designs, and fired. You can’t eat off of these, as I don’t know how these were made, but they become one-of-a-kind art pieces. Place them on your wall, on a mantle, use them for your keys or treasures, or fill them up with cupcakes! Three designs: Slash and Yeah are black, and Trudy is 24K gold.
