Tenmoku pottery - Designs Inspired by Nature !

     During a recent visit to Malaysia, I had a chance to feast my eyes on this skilled pottery work from a showroom called Tenmoku pottery.... Tenmoku pottery is a Malaysia brand name that has been established since late 80's. The concept of fossil-like imprints using actual elements such as leaves or twigs create a real life experience for the beholder. Combining the knowledge and idea of both modern and traditional art, Tenmoku pottery offers a treasure of arts and crafts inspired by the beauty of nature. Each creation is hand painted with inspiration of the designs derived from nature itself, hence called "Designs inspired by Nature". (Excerpt : Letter of Authentication given from Tenmoku Pottery). 
It's really amazing to know how much one can learn from travels..., isn't it ? 

 Stunning collection of ceramic blue vases ...

 Table vase with spiral artwork..
 Aroma burner with twig like patterns ..
Nature inspired tea set with earthy tones ..
I love these mugs...with their quirky handles..
