These will be my last cups.25 is enough, my next 25 paintings will be something else. I don't know what, but I'm certain something will be done. Right now I feel I should choose another subject, but then again it would be nice to just feel the day and see what it brings. I'll see.
My cup no.20 is what we call a traditional hiking-cup. Nice to fasten to the backpack so it's easy to find it and have some water from a mountain stream. It's made from wood. This one in particular has a Viking design and has been richly awarded for good design.
No. 21 is the yellow Zebra cup. I fell for this one the minute I saw it. It's really something of it's own. Who would think of using the tail as the handle? Well, Torun Lønaas did, she's the designer and produser of this special cup. I would love to own one of these.
No.22 is another rare cup. The designer, Mette Fjørtoft, combined black clay and an orange rubber tube as handle. I do not own one so I can't tell how it works. She should be awarded for not beeing afraid of new combos.
No.23 is another different cup. Anita Duun Lorentzen (designer) tells that this cup was inspired from her Grandma's fine china. The roses and gold details do remind us of old caffee sets, but used together with clay it renews it all. Traditions in new ways, I like that. This cup has been richly awarded too.
No.24 isn't special except the dots. The background however gave me some new ideas. I'll have to work more on that.
My last cup, no.25, is designed by Anita Duun Lorentzen too. Bottom wide and top tight, the opposit of so called normal form. It has been fun making all these cups and now I'm looking forward doing something else.
I hope you have creative days too.
