I love the British saying “Storm in a Teacup”, taken literally by designer John Lumbus. These adorable interactive tea cups have golden boats that ride rolling mechanical waves when you turn the handle. Lighting even flashes from the storm clouds!

Sophie is a talented illustrator who has a wide portfolio of beautifully illustrated children’s books and editorial work. She describes her artistic influences as:
“Japanese woodblocks. Chinese packaging design. Old photographs. Maps. Scientific diagrams. Jellyfish. Moby Dick. Iridescent feathers. Train journeys. Figs. Postage stamps. Foxes and giant anteaters and sea otters and pipe fish. Anatomical drawings. Poems and pieces of string. Clouds and shadows. You know, that sort of thing.”
