It's compelling to see a dish design that allows the drinker to interact with his beverage in additional ways, and the D-Skin Tea Cup possesses this quality. Made by Leo X. Zhao, the double-skin ceramic mug incorporates a fluid form with a smooth inner vessel and an undulating outer shell.
The shape of this pretty pottery specimen has an effect on the way the heat from one's tea or coffee transfers to one's skin. On a cold day, grasping the D-Skin Tea Cup by its middle will give the fingers more warmth.
