Das boot

We love The Boat from Reiko Kaneko. The contrast of the natural fiber rope handle and the hand made English fine bone china is just stunning. The makers on the factory floor nicknamed this breadbasket or fruit bowl 'the boat' while it was being prototyped as they thought it resembled a Viking ship, and the name has stuck! This inspired the rope handles too - each one is spliced by hand, just as sail makers and seafarers have done for centuries.
