Seconds Teacups, Set of 4
Note: This product is no longer available.
Design by Jason Miller.
Jason Miller's Seconds series of "beautiful mistakes". Products that are "seconds" are products that are not quite right. These Cups/Saucers challenge the rules surrounding modern day consumer items. Who says the decoration has to be in the center? Who says a whole bird is better than half a bird? Made through conventional methods of mass production, the decals on Jason Miller's dishwear are intentionally applied "incorrectly". Sold in sets of four Cup/Saucer pairs.
The Seconds Teacups feature beautifully imperfect designs in painted porcelain. Part of a collection of unique design products from the New York Collective Areaware. Sold in sets of four. A Jason Miller design.
Each set of four contains 4 unique patterns.
- Saucer: 6.5"
- Cup - 3.25"Dia x 2.25"H
Designer: Jason Miller
