The Memphis ceramics were named for lakes and rivers and Thun's design captures the flavor of a particularly exotic local. The angled vessel accentuates the natural repose of cut flowers and creates an Ikebana-like arrangement every time. One of the most popular designs of all Memphis ceramics.

Memphis Design Group was founded in Milan, Italy by Ettore Sottsass in 1981. The group designed many postmodern furniture, fabrics, ceramics, glass, and metal objects until 1987. The name "Memphis" came from Bob Dylan's Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again, which was playing during the group's inaugural meeting. Inspired by art deco, art nouveau, and pop art, the group created many bold, colorful, geometric styles that departed from the rigid and dark trends during the 1970s.
