A WINE AND SPIRITS TASTING SET MADE OUT OF TINGLAZED PORCELAIN AND STONEWARE CONNECTS THE HISTORIC COMPONENTS OF ROMAN STONEWARE AMPHORAS AS WELL AS THE MATERIAL'S WELL KNOWN COOLING PROPERTIES. THE STONEWARE DECANTER HOLDS THE LIQUID EVEN IF LAYED DOWN HORIZONTALLY. MAIN REASON FOR THAT IS THAT WE DIDN'T WANT TO DO ANOTHER REDESIGN OF A DECANTER BUT TO CHANGE THE TABLE LANDSCAPE WITHIN INTRODUCING A COMPLETELY FOREIGN ELEMENT. THE GLASSES AND THE BOWL ARE MADE OUT OF TIN-GLAZED FINE LIMOGES PORCELAIN AND PROVIDE A NICE TACTILE PLEASURE WHEN TOUCHED WITH LIPS OR SKIN.
