paper or porcelain?

Would you have guessed that these paper-cup-looking cups were porcelain?

And would you have guessed that these ceramic-or-stoneware-looking plates and cups were made of paper?

Amazing, right? As discovered on Lushlee, Wasara is a series of paper tableware designed by Japanese studio Simplicity. Wasara does take disposable tableware to a whole new level with its stunning form and style. Each simple but sturdy piece is designed so that it will fit comfortably in one hand while you eat. Perfect for cocktail parties at home! And they are even made from renewable and natural materials!

The paper-cup-looking porcelain cups are meticulously handcrafted by Australia-based artist, Samantha Robinson.
