Part of Clara Von Zweigbergk’s Iris collection for HAY, the Iris Mug shares the same muted tones and juxtoposition of sharp edges and soft forms in segmented designs as the other products in the family. The ultra-thin porcelain has been handcrafted in Japan and left unglazed to create a matt finish that reinforces the mug's understated elegance.
