Deriving from the ancient Greek word poterion, πotéry means cup, the vessel that fits in the palm of your hand and serves as the receptacle for any kind of liquid you are thirsty for. The physical use of a cup is based on a special “dialogue” between the fingers and the material the cup is made of. Inspired by this collision, we created a minimalistic ceramic object gracefully balancing between the worlds of practical kitchenware and decorative ornaments. The fingerprint on its side constitutes both a literal mark of someone’s touch and a metaphor for people’s timeless association with the material world that surrounds them.
