Aficionado coffee sets design

Worthy coffee sets for connoisseurs


Coffee aficionados owe their gratitude to Kaldi, the Ethiopia goat herder, who by astute observation, noticed his goats became more spirited when they ate the coffee berries. Also to Pope Clement VIII, who in 1615, was asked to make a decision on the acceptance of coffee drinking, because the Clergy in Venice had condemned the drink as the “bitter invention of Satan”. Upon trying the beverage, he immediately liked it so much he extended his Papal approval.
The nature of tea leaves and coffee grounds influenced the difference in shapes for tea pots and coffee pots. As tea leaves float, it is more pragmatic to place the spout near the bottom of the tea pot to allow the brew to flow out from underneath them. Coffee grounds, on the other hand, sink, so the spout is typically mounted nearer to the top of the coffee pot, allowing the coffee to flow out from above the grounds.
Turkey was one of the early adopters of coffee consumption, and traditionally their coffee pot spouts were made longer, to facilitate cooling of the coffee during pouring, as it was usually consumed without any milk. There also was more added pouring control with the longer spouts and the tall, slender designs didn’t encourage too much agitation of the liquid, so as to assist with the settling of the grounds. Conversely, the more squat, rounded teapots helped the movement of the floating tea leaves, which trapped the heat in the pot, speeding up the drawing of the tea.

The bulky coffee urns were not really built for mobility, so the more refined coffee pots came into favor, to transport the coffee to the customer at the flourishing coffee houses. The tall, slender, straight sided coffee pot could be considered as more masculine then the teapot with its rounded, curvaceous shape. It’s hard to imagine a knitted cosy on a coffee pot. In the past, cafes and coffee haunts were frequented more by men while women frequented the more formal tea establishments. In the Middle East, ground cardamom seed is commonly added to coffee to neutralize the stimulative effects of the beveridge, (2-3 shakes from the dispenser). Also spices such as Vanilla extract, cinnamon and saffron were added.

Handsome coffee sets deserve  fine supporting coffee tables, I’ve also added a selection below.

Between the spaces – the Tao of Ikebana


‭When it comes to Ikebana, I prefer the simpler styles like the early Kuge or Shoka that only employ up to three botanical elements mixed with a lot of space and minimalism. If I can feel the spaces breathing, I’m more content with what I see. This usually occurs with the more simple arrangements. Ikebana is a meditative genre and the spaces are where the yin and yang merge, to create a balance. Just like in meditation, the space between the inhaling and exhaling breaths is a focal point to connect with inner harmony.
The Zen artists approached their sumi-e brushwork art by first contemplating the inherent nature of the aesthetic object and understanding its inner qualities before executing any brush strokes. Ideally its eternal nature could be expressed with purity, spontaneity and an economy of strokes. Similarly, most ikebana arrangements aspire to presenting the design elements with a sublime simplicity and harmony.



Flickriver–Otomodachi Ikebana


‭Some skillful ikebanists can create busy pieces with less spaces that still maintain balance and graceful expression, but this is more challenging, because extra importance is loaded onto the overall form and composition to realize any transcendental qualities. It’s worth keeping in mind that a lot of movement in a floral design can build an underlying stillness that exists by virtue of counterpoint.

‭Flowers seem to respond to tasteful arrangements and have their beauty enhanced in the process. The choice of the display vessel is of importance and can influence the direction of the design. A heavier, more horizontally inclined vessel of warmer colours will be more yang in nature. A grounded yang vessel will allow a greater yin expansiveness of the flowers and design. If the vessel is overwhelmed by too many vertical (yin) flowers, the top heavy design leads to loss of harmony. Horizontal lines and curvature and even diagonal lines within the design, help to ground a piece.

In the philosophy of Ikebana it was emphasized that the cultivation of a transcendent feeling while creating ikebana would be absorbed by the flowers and design and later reflected through the art. The Taoists alluded to this with the statement ‘Keep the fire beneath the cauldron’. What this meant was to avoid being too hyper cerebral when creating a piece. Cultivate awareness from your tan tien (navel), which translates as “elixir field”, rather then from the mid brain. Grounded, relaxed awareness can be attained more easily with this practice, which allows spaces in your mind to manifest, that give more room for inspiration to surface and in some instances create beyond the limitations of coherent logic. ‬Even in the planning stages, if a sketch is made, this was also encouraged.
I have assembled a diverse assortment of pieces that represent the ikebana aesthetic and some vessels that would be a natural fit for the refined ikebana arts.

Jean-Marc Fontaine – Michigan pottery

Jean-Marc Fontaine is a molecular biologist at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, who also likes to manipulate clay molecules into art forms in his spare time at night and on weekends. He spent his childhood and youth in Normandy, France, and his dream of becoming a scientist grew together with his imagination and passion for oil painting, drawing and ceramics. After moving to the US in 1998, Fontaine became fascinated with sculpting. This self-taught artist explores funny and familiar subjects in his figurine objects, see the demonstration videos below. Along with his caricatures in clay he also likes to create rustic, utilitarian pottery and sgraffito decorative pieces.

Adorable clay mutations – Jenny Orchard


Amy----Jenny-Orchard----Grafton-Regional-Gallery-Collection-2008-One eyed creature sculplture

‘Amy’    Jenny Orchard third eye minus two

2008,  Grafton Regional Gallery Collection


To look at Jenny Orchards clay art is to traverse a world of unbridled imagination, populated with adorably mutated sculpture figures which are a zany fusion of animal, botanical and human configurations. They are all imbued with such individuality and spirit that they transcend their abstract hybrid forms to appear almost normal and tangible. Jenny has resided in many countries and her sculptures reflect her fascination and acceptance of diversified cultures. Jenny claims that her creatures are all multispecies that embody a multiplicity of forms without implication of hierarchy.

Her multi chromatic glazed sculptures are vividly infused with an exotic presence that reinforces her influences from living in Zimbabwe during her early years. She likes to call them Zookini’s and her description of her sublime and bizarre creatures is fitting – “My Plant Animals, Plant People and Soul Flowers are an irreligious, non prophet disorganization of recently departed extinct species and genetic laboratory misfits who now reside in a place called Metempsychosia. From this place they now pursue their cause of Multispecies Empathy and Universal Compassion.”
Further influences of African tribal art can be discerned in the form of her ceramic totems that Orchard creates with her intermixing of elements.
Turkish born Jenny Orchard spent her childhood and youth in Zimbabwe, then six years in the UK, before settling in Australia in 1976. Australian aboriginal mythologies and the landscape have made an impression on her creations with the presence of exotic plants and animals such as banksias, choko plants, coral reefs, Tasmanian devils, kangaroos, koalas, sea anemones and other native species. They are merged in an exuberant metamorphosis of all manner of combinations that results in a cohesive co-existence of a multitude of forms.
Jenny Orchard draws on the experiences of her past to mould her own delightful universe, while expressing her joy and awe at the diversity and beauty of all creation and its universal soul.

Vegetable Matters by Jenny Orchid


Herbe Fusarium Oxysporum


Vegetable matters clay figurine by Jenny Orchard

Herbes Fusarian Oxysporon


began life as a fungus, Living
beneath a stylish compost heap
in Paddington, Sydney
despite her salubrious address
she suffered low self esteem
and fretted
over her potato waistline
until one day
her annelid neighbors
showed her
Reality in a Mirror
The beauty of the appendage attached
to her snub nose and sight of sticky red tandrills
swimming on her shoulders
changed her personality forever
