Part of the IEX Asian Heritage collection (a range of fashion and lifestyle collectibles by designers and artists inspired by artefacts from Singapore’s Asian Civilisations Museum), the Impression series of raku clay bowls and plates go beyond the Song Dynasty Yaozhou bowl that inspired them. They are also touchingly ergonomic, with slight dents at the spots where the thumbs go. By Mindflyer/Michael Ng and handcrafted by Steven Low.
