Satisfying present



We asked people not to give us presents for our wedding but the above slipped through...I think it is an object of desire...a china tetra pak jug.

What a great pressy !

I like that sort of thing too. Not a gaudy teapot with china frogs sitting on it.

It's good Kev, isn't it :-)

Have you got a teapot like that Kev? :-(

That is a lovely gift Lils!

Think of the skill in designing and making it, with the juxtaposition of a charismatic cardboard conundrum, and a structured classic design, all cast in the most basic of commodities; white glazed china!

I'd love one of those!

Have you got the receipt...?

There you see, Scrobs? An object of desire. It is made by someone called Estetico Quotidiano (those Italians, eh?)

It is indeed a very nice and quirky present. Thanks for showing that.

You need the ceramic crumpled plastic cups to go with it.

Aren't they fab?

Not over the dead bodies of the good potters of Stoke-on-Trent!

When you try to get milk out of it does it tend to cover you in it?
