A signed proclaimed "Square is Cool."
"What, What?" I asked myself. And there before me were square Fiestaware plates!
Seeing these plates made me feel as if the polar axis had shifted. I don't even know how to feel about this. Fiestaware is suppose to be round. It has been round since 1937. Why change now? Homer Laughlin did have a line of dishes called Revere Ware and it was square. But it did not have the distinctive Fiestaware design. I just can't seem to wrap my mind around this square shape.
I bought one plate to see if I could somehow get use to the idea of square dishes. I put the dish on my table and I am leaving it there. Every time I walk by I shudder and think this is just so wrong.
To make matters worst Homer Laughlin is producing square bowls and cups. I just don't know how I feel about this, square Fiestaware, What next Fiestaware paper plates?
