The story behind this cup:
This is the latest addition to my turquoise pottery with hand handle design. When I started making this pottery line about 10 years ago my ambition was to generate a warm, kind, happy feeling so that the emotional experience in use is a positive and satisfying one. The arm and hand humanises the cup creating not just something functional, but creating a live connection, a relationship, almost giving the work a life of its own. I personally experience that If I have a positive emotional connection with an object I naturally take care of it. We live in an era of mass production, consumption and disposal, which to me often feels careless or harmful. I resonate with human-scale production of bespoke and personally precious items. My belief is that simple acts, for example drinking a cup of tea or coffee, when subjected to the influence of positive design values such as connectivity, emotional worth and sustainability, contribute to the quality and experience of everyday life.
