Quebec ceramist Stéphanie Blanchet offers us a brand-new look at her work with these fine, minimalist cups.
In contrast to her bright, glossy glazes, these pastel cups with an eggshell finish highlight a more refined facet of the artist.
The precise shaping that allows these cups to be stacked is a great feature too.
The handcrafted aspect of these cups makes each one unique. Thus colour gradations and capacity will vary from one to another. The inherent beauty of handmade work.

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.
It was in a teahouse in Japan that the potter Julie Lavoie discovered Tenmoku. On seeing the works of Kamada Koji for the first time, she was inspired by the 'starry skies' effect, unique to this glaze. Like a premonition, this idea of meteors had already appeared in her work before this journey.
The Aurora glaze is Ms Zhang’s most popular porcelain piece! The vibrant shades of blue, purple and red really catch the eye. On a large piece such as this teapot, the discreet colour trails reveal the softness of the celadon tones.
