‘Persona’ is a family of monochrome porcelain teacups, which at first seem identical, but soon reveal their own subtle yet distinct personality. The basic silhouette is a contemporary reinterpretation of a traditional Chinese handleless tea cup with lid. Closer inspection expose a series of individual texture-like patterns, which are almost more tactile than visual. The true quality of these cups is only fully appreciated once held in the hand or up against the light, when the translucency of the delicate porcelain accentuates the patterns.
