finest paperware

Turning the mundane paper cup into finest homeware. Using hand-drawn patterns and slip-casting to create these paper plates and cups that are detailed with Chinaware patterns and outlined in gold ribbing. By Rebecca Wilson.

The paper cup is an icon of the ‘throwaway culture’ and by imposing classical ceramic styling and transposing materials I aim to highlight and question our tendency towards wasteful consumerism. These cups are hand-built from cast sheets of handmade paper. They come in two different styles derivitave of traditional ceramic aestheitics. The ‘Jasperware’ version emulates Wedgewood’s iconic range using stained dyed paper and embossed relief details in white. And the Dutch classic ‘Blue Delft’ is alluded to in hand drawn decals in blue biro.
