The influence of Japanese stoneware on Georges Hoentschel, and a similar attention to form and medium, is clearly visible on his ceramic designs. The two-tone dappled surface, segmented body, and uneven rim of the cup give it a rustic, earth-hewn air. With this piece, its function and origin clearly evident, Hoentschel draws inspiration from both the form and subject-matter of Japanese pottery.
