Deception (Cup and Saucer) by chillichilly

This is a rather unique cup and saucer set- I like how the handle looks like part of a pair of scissors, and the fake shadow is interesting as well…

“what you see is not what you get. this cup and saucer set challenges our perception of what is right and false. the deceiving shadow forged on the saucer resonates the beauty and well-proportioned shape of the coffee cup.”

material : porcelain
size : 4.25 oz

InsideOut Martini Glass, Set of 2

The InsideOut Martini Glasses are available for presale- so now’s the time to put your name down in preparation for all your holiday entertaining (or gift-giving).

“..it creates a wonderful presentation and is a lot better to hold than balancing an overly wide glass filled to the rim on a thin stem…Besides the visual beauty, there is another extremely convincing argument: your drink simply doesn’t warm as fast as it would in a normal martini glass…”

Bowls Plus by Michelle Huang

This might be a nod to traditional Chinese culture, but it could also be a very handy way of having sauces and such slightly separated from your main course.

‘An age-old tradition is revitalized with the contemporary form of the Bowls Plus series. In Chinese culture, it is impolite to finish everything that’s been served, as if to say, “thank you, you gave me more than enough!”. Bowls Plus caters to this tradition with an extra little section built right in where you can politely and conveniently store the leftovers.’

Set of 3 different bowls.
Melamine.
