MAKER TO KNOW: Esther Horchner

Esther Horchner is a Dutch illustrator and ceramicist whose Take a Bath tea-set, is an off-the-wall creation which is as beautiful as it is functional.

A self-confessed coveter of clay-based items, Esther draws inspiration from a collection of creatives and potters. Her lovely illustrations line the inside of white porcelain teapots, cups, saucers and teaspoons, giving them a stylish edge.

Tea-heads, design-lovers and those appreciative of simple, refined line-drawing, this one is for you. Esther has said that her favourite tea is Lady Earl Green, explaining that ‘it has a beautiful transparency in my Take a Bath cups.’

If you rate this lovely piece of design as much as I do I won’t be surprised if you’ve spent as long as I have thinking about herbal teas.
