Nook: Spanish Lace Tea Set by Edyta Cieloch

Spanish Lace Tea Set by Edyta Cieloch


Perhaps not the most functional tea set we'll ever see, but certainly one of the most beautiful.

This piece was made by Polish ceramicist Edyta Cieloch, who slip-cast industrial porcelain and then carved out the intricate design via tracery techniques. (It must take a steady hand to achieve such a delicate look.)

The Spanish Lace set is on display now at the Museum of Arts and Design, as part of the Object Factory: The Art of Industrial Ceramics exhibit. From the artist statement:

Crockery, devoid of its original common function in a traditional meaning, becomes useless but acquires new aesthetic value.
