Boats / Ceramic tableware


In China , more and more designers look forward the ancient culture. This design is inspired by Chinese Black Cover Boats, one of the most famous and representational fishing boats of the Southern China. As a set of tableware, “Boats” are designed in abstract forms of the Chinese Black Cover Boats in the language of black and white glaze, and different combinations make them more flexible.
