Sarah Cihat


Sarah Cihat is one of the most inspiring sustainable designers I can think of.  She's not revolutionizing the power industry, or eliminating our dependence on fossil fuels.  Her efforts are arguably small in size, but to me, that is what makes them so largely brilliant and inspiring.  Sarah creates Rehabilitated Dishware.  She collects used or unwanted ceramics from secondhand stores or overstocked piles and turns them into something new.  She resurfaces the plates with modern colors and graphics, which play on the character of the original ceramic design, giving a new appeal to previously unwanted products.
