Above all, the special dishes,which provides the stage for the accurately designed sweets: organically shaped cups, plates and bowls come from the Wiener Designerin Anna Riess,who crafts each piece by hand. “As an artist, I express myself in my work, but here I express myself, so to speak,” explains Riess with a laugh and drinks with relish from one of those mugs.
Because she works without a potter’s wheel, Anna forms cups and plates by hand, i.e. presses the clay into the right shape. The ceramic is then fired, glazed white and finally each piece is given the characteristic gold rim.
