Your college days are long gone — and with them the nasty futon, purple lava lamp, and plastic bookshelves that furnished them.
But your mix-n-match dollar store dish collection is still stuck in time.
Graduate to local artist Amy Halko’s affordable yet couture porcelain tabletop pieces. Her handmade offerings — bowls, platters, tea cups, saucers — are all one of a kind and boast delicately abstract designs like painterly botanicals and geometric shapes.
Earthy colors — chocolate, cream, rose, sky blue — and imperfect forms are two signatures of her collection. But she’s best known for not only decorating the inside and outside of her dishes, but also the underbelly. You will be pleasantly surprised.
As will friends at your next dinner party.
