These interesting cups are the work of British designer Laura Bethan Wood. Made of bone china, they're designed (as Leonora Oppenheim reports on the Cool Hunting blog) to "... improve through use, (as) the inside of the cup is treated so that it is more susceptible to the staining that results from tea drinking. The more the cup is used, the more the pattern is revealed and, over time, the intensity of the pattern will increase—the speed depends on the owner’s personal tea drinking habit." The cups are all hand finished and cost £35 each (including saucer). Contact Laura through her site to purchase.
