Do you have a teacup which design you adore so much? Isn’t it difficult finding a perfect tea cup for your tea set? I, as a tea ware retailer, find difficulty to looking for a tea cup which design really satisfies me. So, I’ve came up with an idea to design our own cups.
Konnichiwa, it’s Koheiヽ(^。^)ノ I think Japanese tea ceremony is for getting away from daily life and experiencing an extraordinary peaceful moment. Our usual tea time should have the same kind of essence. I believe the design of utensils can be powerful enough to create the extraordinary moment. I love classic designs, but I don’t like old fashion or ordinary ones. As ancient tea masters find beauty in rustic tea bowls with simplicity, I want to create contemporary designed cups with simplicity and sophistication.
Now I’m asking a ceramic manufacturer to make tea cups that I designed. We had many revised drawings though out our meetings. Finally, we got the plaster samples (In the photo below). I was so exited seeing them in three dimensions and I was fascinated by thinking of the tea time with them. But the figures were a little different from what I imagined. We revised the drawing again, and now we are still working on our next steps.
This is a tough change for me. Not only the design, I have to consider many other things like capacity, usability and pricing, I’m really enjoying this project and am excited to see the final products^^ I hope I can introduce them by January. Jah!
