This contemporary design of a traditional Japanese tea set was created by artist artist and designer Jin Kuramoto.
In the artist’s words:
These are tea sets using Japanese traditional wooden design of spin forming. These can be piled up to place. They offer not only function as practical tableware, also the presence of artefacts to view.
After careful discussions with craftsmen on how to process and finalise them, I produced several kinds of collections with distinguishing forms and colours.
By bringing contemporary values to traditional industries, I am hoping that it will generate new economic benefits and also traditional craftsmanship will continue to grow.
