Cup from Catherine De Abreu | LazuliQuebec Ceramist Collection
Laval ceramist Catherine De Abreu advocates a contemporary approach to the objects she creates.
This collection includes a vibrant blue teacup that conjures up images of the sea, Greece...or even Portugal, native land the artist’s family.
The craftsmanship behind these cups is what makes them unique as the colour gradient and intensity varies from one object to the other. Think of it as the yardstick of what handmade looks like.

Japanese ceramic teapot with a deep blue finish that easily blends with any decor.
This cup was designed by the Camellia Sinensis team in partnership with a ceramic workshop in Taiwan. Made of porcelain, the pure white glazed interior finish is perfect to enhance the colour of the liquor of either an entire gaiwan infuson or a shared teapot. An elegant everyday accessory with its pleasing curves and practical size.
As she prepares her ceramic's third firing, the artist lays out laser decals that will add her object's undeniable signature: the jellyfish. Why this creature? "There is no specific reason ... I find this marine specimen fascinating, it's seducing simply by its beauty."
