Thea

cultural dialog in porcelain

The designer Daniel Eltner conceptualized this series as homage to the invention of the pottery wheel during the Bronze Age (ca. 2000 BC) in Europe and Asia Minor. Only by this, it became possible to manufacture rotationally symmetric vessels for storage purposes and the consumption of food and beverages. Archetypes of vessel were produced, characterized by function, trade and culture. This tea pot is the symbol of a handing and keeping vessel. The assemblage of two tea cups results in a very wide pot, which allows the tea to develop its aroma. From the lateral view it displays a V-formation and its top disembogues in the spout. At a simple turn, the tea canalizes towards the spout and enables a perfect pour out.

 

Archeology meets modern.
