    Kolk Coffee Cup by
    George Gibbens

    The Kolk cup is made from a process that evolved more than two thousand years ago which achieves the toughness and strength expected from porcelain. The part is then coated in a basalt grey glaze, with the final product resembling an igneous rock.
    The design is the result of an obsession to create the most simplified form possible while honouring the process and materials.
