Clover Collection By Nendo

Clover Collection is a new series of ceramics by Nendo, that is created in collaboration with Gen-emon, one of Japan’s most renowned porcelain kilns. This collection of tea cups, mugs, cups and saucers, and wine cups, features a distinctive three-leaf clover design.

The inspiration of this floral pattern comes from Gen-emon’s historic five-petal plum blossom motif. The ume petals are reduced from five to three, transforming it into a modern three-leaf clover. These artisan-made ceramic pieces are also painted in indigo and vermilion to stay true to Gen-emon’s heritage palette.

To complete this traditional cup collection with a touch of Nendo’s playful modern flair, the base of each piece is hidden with a lucky four-leaf clover to be discovered by the drinker.
