This lovely 'Buddha' series of cups and teapots is made by Brazilian designer Estúdio Manus.

Now you can sip your tea and let the Buddha in your tea cup remind you of the way of Zen--a little meditation while drinking your morning tea! The material is white porcelain with gold detail.

Estúdio Manus is based in São Paulo and is the collaborative effort of Caio de Medeiros Filho and Daniela Scorza. Their ethos is to not only make products that are beautiful but also good for the environment. The couple’s talents range from architecture to product design and art. Their work has been exhibited at Maison & Object in Paris and in shops and galleries worldwide.
