Sucabaruca Coffee Service
The latest edition of the Sucabaruca Coffee Set has been carefully crafted by Kihara Ceramics. The finish of the set, a glossy white, showcases the traditional glaze work of the studio. Kihara, a Japanese porcelain producing company based in Arita, Japan, has been hand-crafting ceramic wares for over 400 years.The company still produces work with techniques that have remained unchanged while also incorporating new technologies to enhance the nature of the material.
The Sucabaruca Coffee Set is rich in cultural and formal references that come from the influences of several people involved in the project. The main cone-shaped body is reminiscent of Carmencita, the famous character created by Armando Testa in1966 for the tv show Carosello. The lines in the ceramic are meant to emphasize the uniqueness of the pieces which can be stacked and combined in various ways.
Set includes pot, filter funnel and 3 cups.
