Limited-Edition Artist's Plates


Wrote Rima Suqi in Thursday's New York Times Home section, "'A friend of mine was visiting and her son broke a plate,' Edwina von Gal recalled. But it wasn't just any plate; it was a no-longer-available limited-edition one by the late Dan Flavin. Ms. von Gal is best known as a designer of gardens and outdoor spaces. Less than a year after this sad episode, she also became a plate maker. She chose six artists she knew 'well enough to call up and ask' to design 'something that would look good in a circle, that could be cropped round.' Teresita Fernández, April Gornik, Mary Heilmann, Maya Lin, Richard Prince and Ed Ruscha (below) all said yes, and Lenox agreed to produce an edition of 500 sets."


The verso of each plate is marked with Azuero Earth Project's logo, the name of the artist, and 2012 (the year of the edition).

Set of six 11-inch-diameter bone china plates: $750.

Experts' Expert: 100 Ways to Improve Your Photography


Wrote photographer Ming Thein: "This article was originally posted in a series of 10 mini-excerpts back in the very early days of the site; Google Analytics tells me that it was hardly viewed, so I’ve re-packaged, updated, and re-presented it again here as a monster all-in-one reference."

Fair warning: There goes the weekend.

No-Spill Ice Cube Tray


What took so long?


From The Green Head: "This new No-Spill Ice Cube Tray not only prevents spills when moving it from the sink to the freezer, it also protects the ice from absorbing odors."


"Just fill up this innovative tray with water, secure the tight-sealing silicone lid, and it's ready to freeze easy-release rounded ice cubes without any spillage."


"The trays are stackable and can be stored horizontally or at up to a 45-° angle [top]."

Now that's pretty cool.
