This Mother Cupper is made of 33 Porcelain plates suspended from the ceiling. Entitled "Ceci n'est pas" it was designed by Bertrand Fevre and was made at Limoges. It can be currently seen at Gallery S.Bensimon in Paris.
Kami means paper, and the Kami mug is hand crafted in a workshop in Hokkaido Japan by Hidetoshi Takahashi. The cup is made from Castor Aralia wood, shaped using a potter’s wheel (Katz's note: I believe they mean Lathe, unless that is the softest of soft woods) and coated with a food safe resin.
Although my name implies otherwise, I am not a member of the tribe.
That said, I have always have had a soft spot for the menorah. I like it as a conceptual project.
"Make something that holds nine flames. No other rules."
That said. I've been a little disappointed this year. I haven't found a lot of ceramic menorahs that I am crazy about. But I find there three to be charming examples of what ceramic menorahs can be.
