These vessels have been cast from disposable coffee cups. The appeal of a handmade product is that slight variations occur. This can happen in size, colour, shape and surface contour. Therefore every piece is totally unique.

I remember looking at nana’s dressing table and seeing all her jewellery boxes sitting on faded lace doileys. They were wonderfully made but always so repulsive to me. I think that’s where the attraction began, i needed to make them beautiful to me. So sitting down for a cup of tea one day i decided to try make the doiley’s a surface pattern, still keeping their material like slumping qualities and delicate nature.
