Most of what Llardro makes is as sugary sweet as cotton candy at the state fair but it looks like they are trying to attract a younger hipper buyer. They have this line of “Re- Deco” porcelain that has some pretty interesting pieces. If only they would hire James Jean to design some pieces they would really kick it up a notch.
