Poised to leap, a tiny frog scans the sky with bright eyes. A harbinger of rain, his shrill evening song echoes through the tropical rainforest of Bali. Putu Oka Mahendra creates an exquisite tea set for four in refreshing shades of green. Crafted by hand, the teapot features a rattan handle. Four matching cups and saucers complete the set.
