Ben Feiss' multicolored, segmented porcelain jars make great, if somewhat unconventional, thermos-like containers. I could particularly see these being used for soup or rice at a slightly eclectic Japanese restaurant. Each jar is held together by a brightly colored rubber band and cork, and breaks apart into a container, strainer, lid, and cap. Available at Iko Iko.
