Tea Ceremony Cup | No. 42
This collection draws inspiration from the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Inspired by the visual beauty of the ritual, the deep respect for the practice, and the energy surrounding it. This collection motivates us to bring small ceremonies into our everyday lives and we are delighted to share this journey with you. Ceramic pieces high-fired in a gas kiln made in a very limited edition. Ceremony Tea cups are hand-thrown of stoneware clay, each decorated by hand, finished with transparent glaze.
-Approx. 320 ml / made of food-safe materials for everyday use
About In August Company: We are a small company hand-crafting homeware (textile, ceramics and wood) in the Czech Republic. We’re both design enthusiasts, creatives and keen collectors, so soon after we started living together, it became quite clear that this shared love of design and fine craftsmanship was going to take us somewhere fun. It first started as a project combining our two passions – drawing and photography and, before long, we took it a step further and began designing objects for everyday use. Our products came out of passion and love for objects around us. We developed a certain need to surround ourselves with beautiful things. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a ceramic cup, a wooden table, or a cotton throw. We simply realized that living with things that are well made and have a story behind them puts us in a good mood and makes us who we are. It’s extremely important for us to make things we’d actually want to buy. We design most of the products ourselves but as we have many creative and talented people around us, we also like to collaborate with other friends and designers. But still, each piece is designed especially and only for In August Co. We use and test all of them at our home, holiday cottage, and studio to make sure that they really work.
