Bamboo is commonly used for making everyday functional objects in Asia. As a type of material, it has unique patterns and natural color and is flexible, light, and fast-growing. As an evergreen plant native to Asia, it is loved and praised as one of the four noble ones, together with plum blossom, orchid and chrysanthemum.
Inspired by its cultural significance in Asian tradition, bamboo’s distinct natural shape is represented in tōsei’s signature bamboo cup series. Each cup is hand-thrown and endued with translucent Ice Blue glaze by ceramic artist Longfei Wang.
The bamboo cups can be freely stacked into a bamboo stalk, not only saving storage space but also creating artistic scenery in your kitchen. It is comfortable to hold and transformes into fresh bamboo leaves when stacked up.
