Milk Cup from Japan

Here's a beautiful example of simplicity in design from Japan. It's called the Cara Milk Cup, one of a set that also includes an egg cup and a tea cup. They're designed by Rina Ono and hand-crafted by Hidetoshi Takahashi in Japan. From the Merchant No. 4 catalog:

This beautiful milk cup is designed for an individual serving at your coffee and tea setting, however, we think its great for many other things too (salad dressings, seasonings and more!). Cara is made from Japanese Linden wood with a food-safe polyurethane coating inside.

Many more photos of all the designs at Merchant No. 4 and the Cool Hunting blog.
