new: zand2ohs

i’m loving these new plates and little wooden twig pin from zand2ohs. zand2ohs is the work of san luis obispo-based artist mignon khargie- i love the plates she created using a collection of old wooden type. mignon’s projects are often inspired by the work she does with her daughter, which gives everything such a special layer of meaning. click here to see more of mignon’s work and to send her an email (and click here to shop her etsy shop).


Pin It



i particularly love the “OH” plate, because i can so picture someone picking up the last cookie to see that!

i didn’t know anything about that write up- i guess i should go find a copy. do you have a scan by any chance?


Karen Templer

Mignon’s beautiful zoo illustrations are also in the Communication Arts illustration annual on stands now (the July issue). She’s a genius, and I’m not just saying that because I know and love her — she’s truly disgustingly talented.

The Bitter Foodie

Grace – no, unfortunately I don’t.

The feature mentions you, and Apartment Therapy, and….oh, I wish I had the copy here at my office because I can’t remember the others.



These plates are slick! I love the FOXES illustration as well! They remind me of apostrophes :D


These are stunning items however I’ve recently been looking through design blogs and these look too close to other items by different designers, I’ve seen of late for me to go wow!
I understand that today it’s nothing new to come up with a similar concept. I would love to see someone push that envelope a little bit more. Such as I spotted a plate that had the word ‘food’ punched into the stainless steel plate and the fork that complimented it had small type letters saying ‘food’ on its prongs. Very cute!

These plates are wonderful, but I can imagine them being a bit of a bitch to clean if used to eat from! I visited her site, and the work is so cute…especially so as she draws with her seven year old, and creates work inspired by these ‘sessions’. A brilliant artist, and even better mum! Cx


I love the white on white and the use of type! LOVE LOVE LOVE them!
