Cup And Saucer

ClickforArt.com does ‘original art, limited edition art prints & boxed canvas prints from the world’s most exciting new artists’, and now they’ve branched out into a custom line of unique Cup and Saucers.

Each piece comes in a beautifully designed box, and includes a signed and sequentially numbered mini print along with a certificate of authenticity. Only 250 of each design will ever be produced though, so act fast if you want to get your own piece of Series One.

…Cups can tell secrets?

Anamorphic Cups

Anamorphic Cups have a little history lesson that goes along with them, so here goes:

    “Anamorphose” is from the Greek ana, meaning “back” or “again”, and morphe, meaning “form”. It refers to a distorted image that only appears normal when viewed with or reflected from a special device. The most common of these devices is the anamorphic cylinder, which typically consists of a cylinder with a highly reflective surface, placed in the center of a painting that is lying face-up. Such curiosities first appeared in the 1600s, and became popular throughout Europe in the 18th century.

The set includes a stainless steel cup with a polished mirror finish, and distorted images or words printed on the saucer that can only be viewed correctly through the curved, reflective surface of the cup. This would make a great way of pulling off a secret proposal in the middle of a meal, though you should double check what it says because I imagine distorted spell checking is a tough thing to master.
