Did you hear that John Derian's doing a line of plates, etc. for TARGET!!! It's only for 8 weeks, beginning in early September. They're melamine plates, but nevertheless.....

Thanks for your comments. It's interesting that John Derian would choose to do an inexpensive plastic plate. I think that the charm of his work is that the images are literally BENEATH a piece of glass which gives one the impression of looking at a picture through a magnifying glass(which I love). I find it hard to imagine that a person could achieve anything similar on melamine unless it is sandwiched between 2 pieces of clear plastic. Very intriguing, I will watch for them at Target with an open mind :-)

Thanks all
Fiona
