There are two types of cups :
The first group of cups is static, just like long-legged pets. The second group is moving, and exhibits several types of movements: rocking, twisting and swinging (not shown).

I used a plaster mould – from the factory collection – which was made of three different parts. It was initially designed to shape liquid clay into the lid of a teapot. I reproduced this mould itself in porcelain with the goal to use it as a culinary mould. My aim was to bring this particular object into the everyday life. While the user is cooking and baking, he uses the same gestures and movements as the worker at the factory: unsettle the mould, fill it with dough, resettle, bake and then enjoy!
