Upcycled painted ceramics by Mina Perhonen

Akira Minagawa’s faux-Finnish design label mina perhonen has collaborated with eco-friendly design shop Pass The Baton to create this lovely series of ceramics.

They’re made from B-grade ceramics. Industrial mass-production of ceramics results in B-grade and C-grade ceramics with slight visual defects like black dots or air bubble holes. They’re perfectly fine but are typically discarded because of their imperfections.

They range between 1,344 – 2,310 yen.
