The Ceramic Japan Pair Cup is a beautiful gift for two to enjoy. Minimalist but whimsical, these two porcelain half cups face each other on a shared double saucer. We like to think that their flat sides meet as if in a hug or kiss. These mini mugs are just the right size for tea or coffee, while the unusual shape and double-well pattern of their saucer make for a striking snack plate when used on its own.
We love how this was designed with intimacy in mind, a reminder of the importance of shared moments between friends, couples, or family. All white, it’s an ideal engagement or wedding gift, but it’s also something that may encourage you to invite someone round for a cuppa.
Ceramic Japan brings together contemporary designers with traditional ceramists in Seto, Aichi Prefecture, a region with a history of porcelain dating back to the 8th century. Porcelain clay is still sourced from the prefecture’s mountainous landscape and was originally fired using timber from local woodland. Artisans today use age-old techniques, now refined to perfection by modern equipment, making Ceramic Japan’s minimalist products a combination of innovative design and traditional craftsmanship.
