A rustic tea cup with fading glaze revealing the texture and imperfections of the ceramic beneath seemingly creeping its way up the sides of the piece like branches. The contrast between the pale, glossy glaze and the dark, muted ceramic produces a piece that feels mid transformation.

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.
