All numbered for exclusivity, Milly developed this range of sandblasted ware by mixing air pressure with the abrasive material of sand resulting in the exterior glaze surface of the cups is slowly worn away to create a soft, textural surface.
The earthy tones of this range were inspired by “Hanami Dango”, Japanese rice treats that are served during the Hanami Cherry Blossom season.
