Alam Ansari, a studio potter and a hard-working family man from Sunderbans, looks up at the sky and at the dwindling Sun, with its vociferous gaze receding slowly and gradually into the black opaqueness of the open moon.
A dewdrop of water, from the far sky and the long trees, touches the cold skin on Alam's face! "It rained that night", mentions Alam. He says, "I continued to stare into the sky, and realised that the Sun and Moon are a part of the same clan, playing with yellow and dark colours of the night, yet so different from one another!" He further adds, "the Sun and Moon are like his own daughters, Saina and Meera, intermingling and fighting with each other, but also loving and caring at the same time". He feels blessed by the great Bonbibi (Goddess of the forest)! A second drop of water hits Alam's face, and he starts to wrap his "Potli" of work, with a wide smile on his face! Finally, he knows that he will sleep in peace, for tonight he is inspired by the Sun and the Moon and by the meeting of two godly entities!
After three months of diligent working and sleepless night, our design team were able to capture the essence of this simple village story, the story of inspiration into 'Simply Pastel Part II: Sun & Moon'. This is a range of ceramic tableware with dual tones of mustard yellow and off-white, the pastels that inspired the team and Alam.

Incredibly handmade and delicately hand-glazed by Alam Bhai, €˜The Eclipsed Four€™ is an East Indian earth-tale, that came into being when he was inspired by the irregular, infinite beauty of the Golden Sun and Milky Moon in space; so different, yet part of the same clan. Translating this inspiration into beautiful studio pottery, this set of four ceramic dual-toned soup bowls with four spoons, have shallow round bodies with simple handles and have been double fired at 1200 degree Celsius in 100% lead-free glazes. The exterior of each, is hand-glazed to perfection in an ombre of two dreamy colours- a translucent cosmic-milky glaze on the top and a gold-dust mustard glaze on the bottom and the inside, like the forever play of the Sun and Moon at the brink of dusk. €˜The Eclipsed Four€™ is handmade with love by Alam, a Studio Potter, to bring the mystic sparkle of the galactic universe to your favourite kitchen and table spaces.

Loved the product but the hanging strings are fragile and the product is heavy since it is made of terracotta. The strings should be sturdy enough to hold the weight.
I had ordered four cups and received them on time, beautifully and safely packed. These cups are a sight to behold - craftmanship and material of high quality. It is such a joy to have your tea or coffee in these beautiful cups.
These will be the cynosure of all eyes visiting my home. Very beautiful and classy!!!!
It is just awesome.
