Two nifty design finds

Just a couple of cool teaware designs I've spotted recently ...

First, dig this pretty retro cup. I love the ’50s modern-nature design, particularly the colors, and the depth of the saucer. [via Illustrated Living]

They sell canisters with the same design.

Secondly, this tea set is pretty flash. While I'm not wild about the smoked glass, the overall design and functionality is interesting. I'm also not sure exactly how that teapot would handle given that big knob. The teacups, though, are each two small globes, with a screen between each hemisphere. Pour the water, steep, then flip and remove the top hemisphere containing the leaves. Could be good for serving different teas to each person, or a tasting. [via Yanko Design]
