One day while JA was pondering a Muse Vase he realized that so many of our objets, though completely hand-crafted, don't always look it. JA has always said that when design is at its best it looks uncovered rather than created, as if it always existed in the universe and the designer's role was merely to discover it. With the Naiveté Tea Set he wanted to do just the opposite—make the artist's hand present.
With a nod to iconic Wedgewood Jasperware, our Naiveté Tea Mug started as a pinch pot that was then cast in colored porcelain and adorned with hand-carved porcelain cameos and flourishes. Unschooled in appearance but expertly functional, our Naiveté Mug sips beautifully and adds a sassy surprise to your tea ceremony.
