    This set is a table sculpture composed of four elements: coffeepot, teapot, milk jug and tea caddy. The parts fit into one another and together form a whole, like a three-dimensional puzzle. The overall form changes, depending on whether the service is being used or not. Its mode of presentation is that of a compact structure that may be carried around easily. Formally the sculpture makes use of the idea of combining and contrasting outright vertical and horizontal objects. The teapot features a flat, wide organic form, while the coffeepot rises upward like a tower in a landscape. In their functional mode the objects are turned around and tilted. The axial position of each form may be changed in such a way that the spout is exposed and and an entirely new composition emerges.
