Cool Stuff: Marco Cibola "Middletons" Plates

I love these melamine plates by Toronto illustrator Marco Cibola.

Each lightweight, 10-inch plate has a subtly varied design, though they're clearly all of a piece. Cibola named the set "The Middletons" and ascribed a different personality to each member of the melamine family: Doug, Janet, Claire, and Perry.

Rather than serving food on them (though I have to admit they would be a pretty great addition to the picnic basket), I'd hang these on the wall, where they'd serve as both art and a tongue-in-cheek tribute to your granny's wall mounted plate collection.

They're $40 for the set of four from Poketo.
