Artist: Mie Kongo
OK, friends and family... Christmas is coming up and I totally want these amazing cups. heh heh. They are created by Mie Kongo. Mie makes the cups, and then creates the handles from vintage molds. When you fire porcelain it shrinks slightly and the handles were made by casting and casting the slightly smaller objects until they were small enough to be handles. You can see an example of all the casts in the last image. Neato! See more of Mie's work in her Etsy store and see her paintings and other work on her website.
