Ripple Tableware: Movement Frozen in Porcelain
When we started Haand, I had much more free time. I lived next to a creek that fed in to the Haw River, and when I had nothing to do, or some time to kill, it was nice to sit in the shade and watch the water. Occasionally, a leaf would hit the surface of a quiet pool, or minnow would break the surface. This product line is inspired by the phenomena and the feeling of watching water flow on a quiet afternoon.
