Rehabilitated Dishware by Sarah Cihat is an exercise in sustainability that reincarnates existing products. Used or unwanted ceramics are redesigned and resurfaced then presented as new collections. Interesting designs and modern colors enliven the dish, extending its life cycle past the thrift store of overstock pile. Each piece represents a rejection of more brand new products filling shelves and storage closets. Rehabilitated Dishware is a subtle statement of the importance of recycling and the renewed value of unwanted things.

The process begins by buying disware from various second-hand stores, such as Goodwill and Salvation Army, or rummaging through the reject pile at retail stores. The dishes are then reglazed and refired.

Taken is a collaboration between myself and Michael Miller. We work with very different materials, she with metals and myself with ceramics. After years of talking and dreaming about projects together, we finally got around to doing it. With Taken, we combine two materials that bring attention to the different elements of each woman's craft and how they naturally complement each other.

After a sold out limited edition of 150 candles, I have continued my work with Joya. Perfume in Porcelain is a series of scented candles and fragrance diffuser sets, co-designed with Frederick Bouchardy.

Next is Fvs.S, a line of beauty products that will include perfumes, creams, and soaps. Our current collection is available at Barneys New York, Selfridges London, and select apothecaries, boutiques, resorts, and department stores worldwide.

Designer Sarah Cihat is best known for her Rehabilitated Dishware collection, introduced at the ICFF in 2003 and produced by hand in Brooklyn to this day. Cihat describes the distinctive offerings as "an exercise in sustainability that reincarnates existing products." Since then, she has expanded her portfolio. Dirt encompasses her slip cast porcelain pieces that feature relief, underglazing, and decals.

She co-designs Perfume in Porcelain, a series of scented candles and fragrance diffuser sets, with Frederick Bouchardy of New York-based luxe home fragrance studio, Joya.

Cihat also maintains a continued collaboration with metalsmith, Michael Miller, entitled Taken.

Cihat's work has been featured in numerous publications, including Vogue, Elle, The New York Times, Surface, Wallpaper, Food & Wind, NYLON, O at Home, and Metropolitan Home, and in exhibitions at the St. Etienne International Design Biennial, Salone di Mobile, and Fragiles Exhibit and Book in Miami, Berlin and Dubai.
