Tea cup JUNCUS

Modern handmade cup for tea in matt porcelain and rush. Ceramic design meets the craft of wicker, rush weaving, in a critical design project aimed at the protection and enhancement of crafts in extinction in southern Italy.
the rush weave protects the porcelain and at the same time allows it to be used as a hand warmer, to hold the cup with a pleasant sensation of warmth in the hands and without getting burned.
A dialogue between two arts and two crafts, but at the same time between the archaic and the modern, where tradition, in its meaning of “changing” and “looking ahead” is the absolute protagonist. The environment, man, his resources, his work and his trades become the center of this project aiming to support and raise awareness on the themes of sustainable and real economies.
The wild rush was collected along the banks of the Ufita river, in southern Italy, selected, cleaned, and hand woven by Mrs. Maria Vittoria (in San Nicola Baronia, Irpinia).
