This vessel beautifully embodies the spirit of a summer sunrise. The textures reminiscent of waves, along with the gentle yellow tones of the rising sun, create a harmonious blend. The impactful crimson stripe adds a striking contrast. Additionally, the neo lavender rim's color-shifting quality, akin to a changing sunset, adds further intrigue. When illuminated by fluorescent light, the pink hues gracefully transform into shades of blue.
