Lou Rota

Have you heard of UK designer Lou Rota before? If you've browsed Not On The High Street lately then perhaps you have. They carry some of her collection of recycled mis-matched ceramics and they're certainly worth a look... especially if you enjoy collecting quirky plates and share her passion for nature themes and vintage china.

The latest indie trend seems to be bugs on dinnerware -- have you noticed? What do you think - yes, no, sometimes? I have two opinions. If I display them on the wall or in a cabinet only -- fine. Cute! If I serve dinner on them, not fine unless it is to close friends who share my sense of humor. I'm not too keen on bugs peeking through my salad greens though, I'll admit. Then again, it may be a good way to stay on a diet! ha!
