Embroidered Porcelain Cup and Saucer by Claire Coles
For someone that never drinks tea, I own way too many teacups. I don't use them. They just sit on my bookshelves looking beautiful and holding little treasures like spare buttons or especially lovely pieces of ribbon. So, for someone that never uses teacups, these stitched porcelain pieces (my latest obsession) are great. Completely non-functional, of course, but they make delicious pieces of art. My favorite part is the imprefection of the stitching- homemade and kitchy. My goal for 2008? Figure out how to make my own!
