LAMILL Espresso Cups and Saucers
We partnered with KwangJuYo Ceramics in Korea to develop a minimalist line of high-quality, white porcelain cups for specialty coffee and tea. Dating back to 1968, KwangJuYo successfully rediscovered celadon pottery techniques once lost and progressed the craft into modern times by spearheading culinary projects with Michelin star awarded chefs Corey Lee of Benu (SF) and Thomas Keller of The French Laundry (Napa Valley, CA).
The ceramic techniques here date back more than a half-century as temperature-controlled kilns from the 18th century are scrutinized to the tenth of a degree, producing a durable and lightweight porcelain product. These products are made of high-grade white porcelain clay, ‘Wolbaek (moonlight blue) clay’ which comes from KwangJuYo’s self-developed technology. Characterized by a delicate yet subtle medley of green, blue, and gray glaze that is non-toxic and made of 100% natural minerals (no pigments added), you can now have your espresso, cappuccinos, lattes, or your favorite teas in vessels crafted in beauty and precision.
