The beauty of sculptural form

This smooth milky white tea pot is crafted by a young and emerging ceramic artist based in Aichi Prefecture, Ryosuke Ando. Having studied ceramics in Seto and experience in graphic and product design, he is inspired to create unique forms through a combination of mold casting and hand-finished techniques. The plump body, rounded spout, sculptural handle, and ergonomically designed flat lid fall into place naturally as one. A meticulously designed pot that fits perfectly in the hands.
