I've seen some quirky porcelain pieces before, but I have to say that Spin Ceramics' creations have moved up to the top of the list. What I particularly like about these pieces are that they are elegantly eccentric, making tea time that much more enjoyable.
A collective of designers and artisans based in Jingdezhen, China (the porcelain capitol), Spin Ceramics is led by artistic director Gary Wang. By using techniques that date back to the Ming Dynasty, their work is both traditional and contemporary.
