Renowned Swedish designer Ingegerd Råman was keen to practically apply Arita’s advanced craftsmanship to create a functional, stackable yet beautiful tea set. This series, graced with its delicate lines of form places greater emphasis on beauty over its stackable design. A unique glaze of the softest texture available in both black and white was developed especially for this range. Råman commented, “This collection was born out of a true collaboration between designer and craftsman, where absolutely no compromise would be accepted until its completion.” Blending together her vast artistic experience in ceramics and Arita’s foremost industrial techniques, a ceramic range this beautiful has yet to be seen.
