Awoulaba by Joana

The Awoulaba is a beautiful woman that just gave birth. In my culture we believe that a woman is at the top of her beauty because she still has full arms, full breasts; the overweight of just becoming a mother. We put oil on her body and she wears a very short outfit to show her body figure. She walks around the village to show that she gave birth, that she glows and that she is in the most beautiful moment of her life.

About this cup

This cup is produced at Studio Cor Unum. Designer Charlotte Landsheer worked out a solution for left over clay in the Cor Unum studio by re-using clay and glaze. The inside of the cup has glaze, the exterior is industrial and dusted. The result is a cup with a basic, firm and rugged look. The producing method makes every cup unique with a constant variation in a matted greyscale pallet. The perfection of imperfection as Lotte Landsheer puts it. And this fits how we like to view the world and it’s people.

Because of the use of high temperature, the cup is water resistant, strong and microwave and dishwasher safe.
