SURROUNDING BY CRAFTED ART PIECES
During this unusual and unique year, most of us are spending more time at home than we're used to. We're accustomed to travel, exploring unseen lands and gaining new experiences. However, somehow, we need to find a way to create a special day, even without leaving our home.
The rhythm of life has slowed down and I've found myself spending more time on daily rituals. One of them is my morning coffee break after a Zoom call. First of all, I didn't pay a lot of attention to the cup which I drank from, though after a few weeks in lockdown I started to go through all of my cups and glasses…
Once I found this elegant and imperfectly shaped espresso cup made by East London based Argentinian artist, called Kiska, I realised that morning coffees wouldn't be the same and that I need to share them with you!
On this tiny cup, you could see the traces of the making process, which imprints the unique identity. Imperfectly shaped clay piece perpetuates the traces of process alongside exposes the nature of the material.
And just look at this cute face!
This face sometimes catches my glance and draws a warm small on my face.
If you love someone to cheer up – you can make a cup of espresso in a Kinska cup.
If you want to find a special bespoke/hand-made/handcrafted gift to someone special from East London –you could get a ceramic piece, made by a local artist.
