present moment

Buddhism and Japanese gardens inspired the tea set. The idea is that using cups which are not stable on their own should make you more conscious because you have to control your movements when you place them in the sand. Using this tea set for your everyday tea ritual makes your mind calmer and deliberate.

Nymphaea

Nymphaea is inspired and named after the water lily flower. The 5-piece set of tableware are made to serve different dishes from humble miso soup to venison. When the simple delicate plates produced from thin porcelain rest within each other, their collective profile and translucency is reminiscent of petals in full bloom.
