Art Trade: Butterfly Suspenders for Horny Cups

Our friend Jess is a ceramic artist extraordinaire. Her animal forms are inspired by the connection between animals and their environment, in contrast to modern society moving away from nature. Amongst her original pieces are Tentacle Spoons and Horny Cups: functional art objects that add a little magic to your morning coffee or your cocktail party.

We asked Jess to make us some Horny Cups that we could use around the shop. Their original design curves around the hand and ends in a point, like the horn of an ox or a ram. It doesn't have a flat bottom so you can't let go; perfect for holding during a party. She modified the design for us so that we could set the cups down on a flat bottom and get back to work.

I traded her a customized pair of suspenders, modified from our Classic Suspenders design. I removed the ornament and affixed a hand-cut leather butterfly, adjusting the straps to fit her perfectly. She's ready to fly into summer festival season!

 

Interested in getting a Horny Cup (or a set of cups!) of your own? Since the Horny Cup creation process is very time consuming, we're starting a mailing list and if enough people sign up, Jess will start producing on a large scale! Sign up to the mailing list to stay updated:
