Story inside this cup

Hide and Seek by Rasheda

Back in 1969, I was picking flowers, catching butterflies, fishing for tadpoles and attempting gymnastics on trees. These are some of my childhood memories that gave me endless moments of glee. Basking in Mother Nature’s love delighted me. Reading Enid Blyton books and sketching at every opportunity were my other favourite pastimes. Daydreaming and imagining a fictional world enthralled me. Of course, I had my naughty sprees, like stealing my Mom’s Milo. Oh what a pleasure it was to hide and eat it secretly. I am wracked in mirth as I unplug some hilarious childhood antics. I wished for long hair like ‘Rapunzel but my siblings preferred ‘Cleopatra’. Escaping their hair cutting attempts proved tricky. I was always hauled out of my hiding places while I ranted and raved to no avail. During a game of hide and seek, my friends failed to find me. Out of sheer boredom I doodled on the inside of the wardrobe I hid in. When my friends Dad discovered me later that evening, I feared the worst punishment. Instead, I was hugged then praised for my accidental work of art and even awarded with a blank sketchbook. What a relief! What a surprise!

This large Latte/Tea 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.
