finklab tableware series

the thrust of the idea for the range of slip cast tableware was an investigation into formal typologies which are already found within the existing domestic context. However, such references were masked through process in a sense that they were a part of the invisible process of the making of café and consequently separate from the experience of the final product itself .

the filter jug / funnel i felt offered a fabulous opportunity if used to derive a form. from a technological perspective it was a very efficient mould and generated an interesting form which was a derivative and not designed as such.

the form generated was unstable and demanded a further element to prop it up. we can imagine this is not a handle but a wedge-like and parasitic element which provides a solution to the cups inherent instability. the host demands the presence of the alien parasite in order to function when placed, in the hand the cup has a direct relationship with the hand and not mediated by the grasping of the handle. the formal language of the milk pot was also derived directly from the cup, a simple inversion which generates a family of related forms within a coherent range of products which included a truncated version for the demand of a smaller expresso cup.
