Description:
This line of dark green porcelain tableware by ceramicist, Yumiko Iihoshi, was originally designed for a well known Japanese curry house called 'Oxymoron'. The glaze variation and tonal differences found in this particular line of ceramics feel warm and one-of-a-kind, while still being minimal and clean for everyday use.
