I am deeply moved by this collection. I love the craftsmanship, the forms, the materials used. While in San Francisco recently, I fell in love with the most perfect Akio mug. When I returned to show my husband, the piece had been sold. Alas, my dear children had alerted my husband and surreptitiously helped him purchase it so that weeks later, at our 20th wedding anniversary, the lovely mug was presented.
