These tiny cups by German designer Hanna Kruse are topped with geometric wire grates to support and show off small objects like jewellery, flower heads or leaves.
Hanna Kruse was influenced by Ikebana, the traditional Japanese art of flower arrangement, when designing the little ceramic vessels.
She manipulated copper and steel wire into geometric patterns to form the tops, which can be opened by twisting them to the side.
Earlier this year we featured a series of ceramic vases based on Ikebana with tops that loop over the flowers to frame them.
