What inspired Elise’s wooden tea set:
These tea sets were originally made for The Barbican in London, for which she was asked to design something that revolved around her feelings towards the Barbican.
During her time at University and in London, visiting the arts centre was always a huge source of inspiration for her––it was a quite calm haven in a bustling, hectic city. The tea set was designed in order to transport the user away from the stresses of every day life and take them out of their regular environment. Made on the lathe, she wanted to create pieces using one of the most hypnotic and relaxing pieces of machinery she could think of!
