While traveling in Europe this summer, we visited the studios of two talented and committed teaware artists in Styria, Austria.
First stop was Eva Meyer in Hartberg. Eva lives and work in an old farmhouse that has been beautifully renovated to accommodate her family and her work. Among roman relics, an ancient quarry and the most amazing forest, Eva makes perfect Chawans, like the one pictured above, in white porcelain, which would show cracking as you use it for tea.
later we stopped by Selma Etateri's gallery and studio in Graz, right in the center of the artsy section of town, next to Kunsthalle. Selma's magically light teacups and bowls are hand-finished with 24 Karat gold, the one above is one of a set of three.
