We are thrilled to announce the launch of the much anticipated coloured versions of Sucabaruca. All of these coloured sets are made by Toronto based ceramicist Alissa Coe, who also made the prototypes for the Luca Nichetto exhibition we hosted earlier in the year.
What makes the colour so incredibly rich and vibrant is a result of the raw porcelain being stained by colour pigments. Each colour has to be mixed by hand in separate vats which is very labourous and time consuming so as a result we will only be producing 10 sets.
Each collection are hand numbered editions of 10 and come with a wooden gift box and complimentary book about the concept and production process of the coffee service.

A perfect pour for some cream from the CEREMONY pitcher.

Don’t worry, it’s just milk.
All of the lines on the cups and pitcher are carved by hand for every piece.
A special marble tray with ebony wood legs, a joint production between Italy and Toronto.
We had custom wood boxes made in Japan for the service. This is the same boxes used to hold precious ceramics for the Tea Ceremony, and we thought it would be a good idea to bring a ceremonious experience to purchasing the set.
Just peeking out for the photograph.
The two boxes also include a special book on the process of Sucabaruca.
