three sweet works by dear human
Now this has to be one of my favorite ideas in a long time. A perfect holiday gift too...
Dear Human is creating one of a kind custom cups for you. It's an interesting twist where in you collaborate with them on the creation of the cup. Read on what they are proposing:
Dear Human: "In the past year we made some major changes in our art practice, moving studios and switching work from a primarily ceramic-object based practice to project based work, not focusing on a specific material but using the most appropriate one in the given moment.
All that said, with such projects (especially funded ones) not so easy to come by, while applying for some and working on self-directed others, we decided to do the Three Sweet Words project to help the transition. With a limited edition of 300 cups, it is a bit like a mini-commission and a self-made kickstarter in one!
What we need are you, who like our work and like to drink from hand made cups! Just give us three words, and we will use them in the custom designs as words, images and colour combinations. If this sounds interesting, we would love to hear from you! Email, Facebook or come by and give us those Three Sweet Words.
If you would rather find yourself a completed one, we will have an edition of cups in our studio and on the website soon.
Each cup is unique and costs $50 plus tax or shipping when applicable.
Participants will need to give us three words, $10 deposit and allow 2-3 weeks for completion. We will ship them close and far.
