Mass produced cups that are sold for very little, have their place, but they lack the beauty and personality of a handmade cup. I love it when I fall in love with a cup. The experience is a definite a "must have it". And the cups become very dear friends. Let me introduce you to some of them:
|I treasure these Angel cups (Gunilla Lundberg from Gothenburg)|
Perfect for a very special cappuccino.
|These cups are little masterpieces (recent acquisition) By Yumi Kato of Gothenburg)|
|I have always loved the Arabia Ruska cups (1950's) They are machine made, but the glaze was hand applied and very tricky to get just right. |
Many cups had to be destroyed in the manufacturings process.
|This and the cup below are really BIG cups, The California potter Randy Schneider, made them with his father's big hands in mind. The handles are enormous. |
Talk about cups with personality!
|Nice faces painted by Angela Dougall in London.|
|These cups are absolute favorites. Each cup has a different design that reminds of the primitive floral design (kurbits) in my Swedish Folk Art Paintings.|
