Now when I say up-cycling china, I mean old broken or orphaned or otherwise unusable china! My sentimental roots can't envision a good condition tea set doing anything but serving tea! :) However, as we all know, many of our pieces of heirloom china do not stay in good condition. That's when my sentimental roots can't get rid of them either!

This discussion is for ideas to recycle or up-cycle as we say now a days into a new life and purpose. Everyone WELCOME to share!

Craftgawker has several ideas including these tea cup candles...

This idea would be especially good for tea cups with inside damage such as hairline cracks, stains or over-crazing.

Another idea for broken china saucers is this beautiful mosaic...

Of course, Donna's topless tea pot garden inspired this discussion...:)

Are upcycled teacups your cup of tea?

"It is no secret that the British love a good cuppa tea, but UK designer Abigail MaryRose Clark of MaryRoseClark has taken it to a whole new level ~ you could say she is creating a storm in a  teacup.  Fascinated by the variety of intricate patterns that adorn all bone china teacups, she is now transforming old and damaged bone china into beautiful pieces of jewellery that beguile their original form."

This is just a fun, fun article on a Yorkshire England blogger who made the news with her Vintage China Upcycle Project. Read "I am an international superstar!" and see Angel in the North blog.

So, so pretty! Genuine antique Chi ng Dynasty green floral shard wrapped in an ornate band of gold plated metal. It is from the Chi ng (or QING dynasty ), between 100- 300 years old.

Talk about up-cycled porcelain china!


Just in time for SPRING! In our "Up-cycling China" discussion look at this lovely idea!

So pretty!  Spring time fun.

With one old broken porcelain china plate, you could make dozens of these and still remember the nostalgic pattern!
