Cup of Stories is one of the initiatives of Global Storytellers. Stories or extracts are transferred into ceramic cups, printed inside paper bio-cups, on a sleeve or on a napkin. The aim is to have a reader feel the closeness of the storyteller and overcome prejudice – to meet a friend – another human being – inside a cup of coffee.
Cup of Stories is an artistic product where three artists come together in creation. The ceramic artist creating each cup by hand, the storyteller that tells the story, and the illustrator that draws an impression of the story.
“Because stories are gifts, and to give means to communicate in the best way possible.”
We see ordinary, every day products as blank pages waiting to be written on. They are the ultimate medium to hold and transfer stories from one to another. A container that can be surprising, simple or just beautiful. Our first product is Cup of Stories – a paper or ceramic cup with a story on the inside from someone, somewhere on this planet for you to stumble upon, gift to someone or drink from in your neighbourhood café.
