Ceramic Cups & Picnic Set

View text
Next project Drinking Glasses Previous project Trigone Rug

Marc wanted to start with the generic plastic cup often seen in water machine dispensers or commonly used for picnics and parties and recreate it in delicate white porcelain, as thin as possible (as close to the original).

The cups were originally conceived in 1998. In 2002, ceramic ‘paper’ plates and ‘plastic’ cutlery were added to form a full picnic set.
