Rust Designs

“She had an immense curiosity about life, and was constantly staring and wondering.” ― Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady

Rust Designs is created by Jessica Rust in California. I love dinnerware; always have.  It hung on my grandmother's kitchen walls and it filled our cupboards. Some of it I could touch when my mom was looking and others I played with when she wasn't.

My love for dinnerware first took me to study product design at Parsons in NYC then onto ancient Chinese factories and to the high tech world of German factories.  The process of making a plate from start to finish after all these years hasn't lost its charm.

There is such pleasure in eating off a plate you find beautiful or simply dropping your keys on a lovely dish that was created by human hands.  Life is all about the little things. Designing for these moments is my thing; it’s my joy, even when it explodes in my face.

Welcome to Rust Design.
