Top of their Class
Working Class Studio, the in-house product design center at the Savannah College of Art and Design, is out with a brand-new line of melamine plates and trays. Their bold graphics are based on 19th century British designs (Pugin tiles, for example), but most have a twist: deer, birds and flowers wander across the Gothic patterns. Others, such as the tray above, use a small repeat of period drawings of crowns and cornets, surmounted by a silhouetted coat of arms. Prices range from just $6-12. A lot of dash for a little dosh.
