This special little tea cup found in Kyoto features an array of imperfect textures and a pinch in one. The elements all work together to produce a one of a kind piece.

Our friend Kingy is based in Kyoto with her husband and baby daughter. She trawls through antique markets and hidden vintage stores in the area to find us amazing goodies.

Kingy is a photographer by trade and shoots the pieces she finds in her parent-in-law's old machiya in town.
