A Poetic & Existential Mug


This ceramic mug, designed by Japanese artist Yukihiro Kaneuchi, is a poetic look at the stories given to products as they are used over time. A tiny landscape has been created on the inside lip that mimics the stains left by coffee. The purpose of the mug and the effects of its use blend into a story representing the memories and feelings of the product. Anyone have a coffee haiku they’d like to share?

That is cool but also gross at the same time. I would feel the urge to scrub that mug every time I saw it.

Oh wow-really intricate work! And probably funny to see how your actual coffee stains merge with (or obliterate!?) the existing scene.
