This beautifully illustrated set of two ceramics cups is a creation by Sara of Nódoa Negra, an Amsterdam-based Portuguese artist and illustrator.
The form was inspired by the well-known disposable plastic cups, which usually have an extremely short life span and in our collective understanding are a substitute for trash and unnecessary waste. In her vision, Sara transforms these objects into timeless heirloom pieces, lends them value and awakes the reflection on over-consumption.
Both cups feature Nódoa Negra's iconic illustrations, inspired by primal forms, bringing to mind magical runes and celestial maps.
The set contains of 2 cups, and can be only purchased as such.
These pieces are one-off custom items, formed and glazed by hand and fired at high temperatures. The illustration is hand-painted and unique.
This ceramic piece is water-resistant and can be washed by hand or in a dishwasher.
