Craft Victoria coffee cup




I have just worked on an exciting project at Craft Victoria, providing drawings for a coffee cup made by Ingrid Tufts. This series is a limited edition.

This is the first time I have done anything like this, and I loved it!
It was so great working with not only Craft Victoria (especially Milly Flemming), but also the opportunity of working with Ingrid Tufts.
These cups are beautiful to hold, and are lovely to use.

The cups are available from Craft Victoria, and are also available online at
Counter@CraftVictoria.
They retail for $30

This is the artist statement that I wrote for the project:
 
To drink a cup of tea or coffee is for most a daily ritual, the choice of cup marks the ritual as much as the choice of beverage.
Wearing jewellery is similar in that the choices of adornment are made on a daily basis and can carry us forward into the day.
So these 2 ritual objects, a cup and a ring are brought together as a conscious celebration of a daily act.


 There are two designs: one with rings, the second has a brooch and a ring on it.
