Memento Mori

Disembodied skulls of gold float gently across the cosmos in this striking contemporary design. Memento Mori, our newest tableware range, aims to remind us of our mortality and how life is fleeting and transient - not to scare us, but to be grateful and to seize each day.

Real gold skulls and salvaged late 60s Stardust mandalas are combined in balanced but random ways, so no two pieces are the same. Dinner plates, side plates, noodle bowls and mugs are all available both in store and online.
