When I saw Jorine’s ceramics over on pretty pretty paper (specifically, the Tea Time set), all I could think of was Lumiere prancing about singing Be Our Guest in Beauty & the Beast. And clearly I’m not alone, because the designer herself says: “Tea Time is a high tea set based on characters. Build up to be a family. Each piece has its own identity. With their character-like look they seem to come alive, living their lives on the table like soldiers in a little nation. Creating surrealistic moments like in Alice in Wonderland.”
In addition to the whimsical tribe of tea things, there’s the curvy Cafe Pompose coffee set, representing a little caffeinated family…
The obscenely clever T(r)eacups, with their adorable tree trunk legs…
And finally, for the mischievous hostess who really wants to get a laugh out of her guests, the Snout cups!
As a bride to be, I have to say… all of these unique ceramic pieces make it VERY tempting to ditch the standard big box store registries and fill my cupboards with an amazing handmade selection!
