designer's own words:Eucalypts are majestic in their coats of dusty green and brown with offerings of exquisite and intricate flowers. The flowers, often unnoticed high in the tree canopy, remind us to seek quiet beauty in life. Unique to our place of dry earth and forever sky, the trees with their almost secret gems, evoke our spirit and connect us here. The Pincess Mina tea cups and saucers are inspired by the essence of colour, form and spirit derived from the flowering eucalypt the Silver Princess of Western Australia. Mina was my grandmother's name. The forms are of polished low relief white or coloured porcelain, with a gloss interior.
