The crisp white of fine bone china and the contemporary coupe shape of Martin Hunt's teacup design is the perfect canvas for these exclusive designs created by some of today's most noted artists and designers. Each cup and saucer set, stamped with the artist's signature and the year 2014, is packaged in a wooden box, making it the perfect gift for Mother's Day or other special occasion.
Working primarily in pen and ink combined with opaque watercolors, Portland, Oregon-based artist Yellena James possesses a complex style focused on quality of line and harmony of elements. Intrigued by microscopic worlds, she creates multilayered compositions full of intimately detailed elements that "morph into beautifully chaotic organic structures." In bringing her imaginary world to her interpretation of the Bennett teacup and saucer, James was inspired by spring, when everything is in bloom and coming to life. "I wanted to capture a feeling of beauty and peacefulness."

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrandmaDebbi from Beautiful Gift!I bought this tea cup for a good friend with whom I have shared many cups of tea over the years. Then, I was delightfully surprised on Mother's Day with the "mom" designed cup from my daughter. They make beautiful gifts in their specially designed boxes. I tied a cream tulle ribbon around the one for my friend and attached the Calla Lily napkin ring to the bow...it looks beautiful!

Rated 1 out of 5 by mgrant from Grea quality teacup & saucer, terrible quality boxI bought this teacup set from my favorite new designer, Yellena James. While the teacup and saucer are wonderful and a great representation of Yellena's work, the accompany box is incredibly poor quality. It is made out of paper-thin wood and arrive in pieces. In addition, the description of the set says that a matching design is printed on the box, while in actuality there is a sticker or decal with the print that is wrapped around the box. Very disappointed that the box is not of the same quality of the cup and saucer.
