The Paper series is a functional dinnerware series that uses a simple creased paper form. I cast this form by hand in porcelain, transforming the often-discarded flawed object, fragile and temporary, into something robust and permanent.
This work is about using porcelain to create a surprising tactile experience. The simple, random distribution of creases in the porcelain surface of the objects creates complex patterns of light, shade and texture that disrupt the smooth surface to mimic crushed paper and invite investigation and touch.
Keeper Cups are a Regular Coffee size - 250 mL (8oz)
Each cup comes with a silicone lid and a silicone protective sleeve
Each cup is dishwasher and microwave safe
All cups are hand made by Hayden in his Marrickville studio.
Clear glaze is applied only to the interior of each piece leaving the exterior with a vitrified surface that will gradually become smoother with use and age. Hayden Youlley Design use porcelain that is microwave, dishwasher and food safe. It is ideal for domestic and commercial use at the table and in the kitchen. All Pieces of Hayden Youlley Design ceramics are hand made and any irregularities in shape are part of the process and should be enjoyed and embraced. Please treat all pieces with respect and care and they will continue to serve you well time and time again.
The exterior vitrified surface will repel most stains but please note that coffee will stain the exterior surface and over time the interior glazed surface as well. If you find normal washing does not remove a stain then Jif cleaning cream is recommended.
