One of the 20th century’s most prolific and prescient image makers, Andy Warhol’s expansive visual vocabulary was informed by the flotsam and jetsam of Pop culture. An avid collector of everything from kitschy cookie jars, to comic books and celebrity tabloids, Warhol’s high-low ethos was years ahead of its time. Among the chief obsessions in the artist’s vast personal archives was Fiesta® Dinnerware. With their Art Deco lines and Technicolor hues, it’s little wonder why the iconic plates would have appealed to the perennially Pop-obsessed Warhol; everyday, accessible, and high-impact, the designs are equal parts functional object and artful form.
In partnership with The Homer Laughlin China Company and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, CALVIN KLEIN has created an exclusive dinnerware offering for the modern home. Printed with Warhol’s graphic portraits of his confidante and art collector Sandra Brant, and the countercultural icon Dennis Hopper, the four-piece sets are a celebration of three storied cultural legacies.
Made in America since its 1936 introduction, Fiesta® Dinnerware is produced at The Homer Laughlin China Company’s Newell, West Virginia factory.
