"HONEY, YOU CAN’T EAT ONLY PUSSY, ADD SOME FRUITS TO YOUR DIET"

It’s a theme in Berlin to do businesses on low culture rather than high culture. Some people jester in front of cars waiting for green light, and others spank people in clubs. Playful got curious about Kamila who makes very ugly plates. Yes, they’re named Very Ugly Plates.





Why Very Ugly Plates?

"I knew they will be naughty and in polish "naughty" is the same word as ”ugly”, like dirty in english. I didn't like to go with "dirty" as no one likes dirty plates, and I like when people tell me that they’re not ugly."


How did you get the idea to start making them?

"I support some charity organisations in Poland and one of them was organizing an auction. I saw there was a cute mini plate with baby seals and it was so cute that I wanted to paint something dirty on it. The whole idea started from that point.

When I was waiting for that plate to be announced for bidding, I bought another one, which says happily unemployed. I posted them on Facebook and all my friend went crazy, so I decided to continue that project and open an Instagram account"


What people buy them?

"Every person with a sense of humor may buy my plates! Age, sex or religion doesn't matter. It's important for me to have different plates so everyone can find something that would make them smile. Some of them are super naughty, and some are just cute and family friendly."



What about Berlin inspires you with the motives?

"Berlin is an absolutely special place for me. It's my home that I chose when I was a teenager. It gives me a lot of disappointment, and I guess that’s the most inspiring feeling to me. Most of the plates were inspired by some events with my friends. Currently on my Instagram I let people guess if it was based on a real story or not and after that I told the story behind."



Which one is THE ugliest?

"The one with a hand painted dog from the 80s that says 'mom says I'm marvelous'."


What does your grandma say about these plates?

"My grandma is dead but the rest of my family loves them. As my parents don't speak english, I always translate to them what it says on the new plates. Though I skipped the one about squirting since I was worried I might have had to explain what that is to them."
