Called Blaue Blume, Tina Tsang of Undergrowth Design’s Blaue Blume Tea Set, they certainly make you look twice… Handmade in England, these earthenware pieces are beautiful and extremely detailed, and you can’t help but giggle when you see the gold shoes on the legs coming off of the tea cup, milk, and sugar bowl, especially when you have to grab the legs to pick them up!
TOKONAME is a young tableware brand from Japan. The interesting fact about them: the way they use traditional craftsmanship to create this modern and fresh teaware.
Traditional because they are located in the town Tokoname on the west coast in Aichi Prefecture of Japan. Which is famous for their traditional pottery and excellent craftsmanship. It is also called "the city of pottery", this town is one of the six historic pottery towns in Japan. You take 30-days tours to discover everything about the 900 years history of pottery culture in Tokoname.
Modern because they transformed the well known Japanese 'Tokomane' teapot in a easy to use, colorful icon. I can't wait till I have these icons in my store and share them all with you.
