The function of a tea set is fairly simple to achieve. But how does one transcend functionality through decoration that both adds meaning to the object and forms an emotional bond with the user?
“Round Square Teaware,” a ceramic set that aims to combine the natural and man-made through a simple and cohesive aesthetic.

On a spiritual level, they also assimilate them into [their] way of life.”
