SUMMARY

his project started with a mass-produced ceramic cup I had been using. It is a good cup but could be better. Therefore, I started to make my own “ideal cup”.

Yet, should I attach handle? Should I make a matching cup coaster or lid? Also, what about the choice of clay, adjustments on glaze recipes, surface textures, volumes, weight…?

I make and review cups repeatedly until I made 100 good cups but not a single “ideal cup”. I doubt if I can find my “ideal cup”, or if it even exists.
