They were designed during an artist-in-residence six-week stay in the ceramics center Sanbao, near Jingdezhen. Though the designs are contemporary, the use of celadon glaze is a direct reference to the rich cultural history of the world-famous Chinese porcelain which also frequently features this glaze. The cups are suitable for daily use and are diswasher-safe. The set is exclusively offered by Terra Delft Gallery.

Ladies and gentlemen, friends of ceramics
It is a privilege for me to say a few words as a ritual gesture to open this exhibition: Ten Dutch ceramists in Pecs. I feel privileged more so, because Five churches, Fünfkirchen, Pecs is this year together with Istanbul and the Ruhr area cultural capital of Europe. Don’t be afraid I am not going to talk about cultural capitals or churches whether it be five, or four and a mosque, a beautiful one by the way.
