Storm in a Tea Cup
By April 30, 2010

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! True, one will set you back a pretty penny at £550.00—but still, they are just gorgeous!

“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.”
