Artisan no. 1 – Sarah Cihat of Rehabilitated Dishware

Yes we are in a recession, but out of this recession is coming a most exciting time. Whether by financial necessity or just from frustration, there is a burst of creativity on the horizon. Even better is the rise of the new artisan. Making things that last are desired again. As is taking the idea of traditional craft (it’s not a dirty word) and giving it a modern spin.

Rehabilitated dishware by Sarah Cihat is such an enterprise. Sarah finds used or unwanted ceramics, adds quirky new designs and re-glazes them in contemporary colours. Each is unique and a truly lovely way of recycling.

She calls it an exercise in sustainability . I think its genius. Unfortunately only available in the States, her website is still worth visiting. Beautiful and thought provoking.
