Out of a brain, an athlete, a basketcase, a princess, and a criminal, I'm usually the basketcase.

German artist Evelyn Bracklow of La Philie (previously featured here) has created another awesomely unsettling collection of beautiful vintage porcelain dishes and tableware covered in swarms of tiny hand-painted ants.

"Many of the new pieces are part of a unique partnership between the artist, Rijks Museum in the Netherlands, and Etsy. The pieces are hand-painted in Bracklow’s studio, signed, numbered and fired to 160 degrees.”

Each delicate, one-of-a-kind piece is as exquisite as it is utterly repulsive. Some of these pieces (and more) are currently available for purchase via the La Philie Etsy shop.
