We're excited by the trend to bring fine art into porcelain dinnerware, and a company called Ink Dish is blazing some new trails by bringing cutting-edge designers into their product lines. All their products are "A" quality porcelain decorated with an inglaze decal that results in a product both elegant and microwave and dishwasher safe.
While we love all their products, we're passionate about their mug gift packs. A pair of mugs makes the perfect gift. Going over to someone's home for dinner? Skip the cliche bottle of wine and bring over a gift pack of 2 mugs.
The patterns on these mugs were designed for Ink Dish by Paul Timman, and if you don't know the world of high-end tattoos, you might not have heard of Paul. He graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art's department of Sculpture and Glass, then moved to Hollywood where he started to apply his craft at Sunset Strip Tattoo, the most famous tattoo parlor in the United States. More than 10 years later, Paul has distinguished himself as one of the leading artists in the world and a specialist in Japanese design. He brings first-class star treatment to these mugs -- after all, this is the fellow that inked tattoos for Drew Barrymore, Angelina Jolie, Pamela Anderson, Ben Affleck, Mark Wahlberg, and many other celebrities.
