Chado for Verreum Prague (2013)

The tea set Chado for Verreum is designed for the celebration of drinking tea. The origin of its name Chado is based on the Japanese designation of tea ceremony. It is a set of archaic and simple designed objects consisting of a tea cup, milk jug, tea pot, cookie bowl and a metal tray. My aim was to concentrate on the materials like silvered glass and colored frosted glass combined with marble and brass. Every object of this set is made of its most suitable material. The cup for example is made of double walled silvered glass, the tray of metal spinned brass.
Chado is created for a ritual.
