The cup is the quintessential ceramic form. Potters throughout history have obsessed on the vessel shape, searching for their own perfect balance of beauty, function, concept, and expression. Contemporary ceramic artists have continued this exploration creating cups, mugs, tumblers, etc. that make their user think, feel, laugh, admire, and want to drink more!
