Rebecca Wilson Ceramic Paper Cups



58 billion paper cups are thrown out every year, and ceramics artist Rebecca Wilson has perhaps found a solution.

Rebecca talks about her paper cup project, “The paper cup is an icon of the ‘throwaway culture’ and by imposing classical ceramic styling and transposing materials I aim to highlight and question our tendency towards wasteful consumerism."

These Delftware-inspired paperware would seem perfect for an outdoor tea party. Despite the potential stains on the inside, I wouldn't help but feel guilty for tossing these out.

Ahh...I see now, ok, so the link is wrong, it leads to Andreas Kocks (also a lovely artist).

Here's Rebecca's project:

She's doing a show with 14 artists:
‘Blue’, Flow Gallery, 1-5 Needham Street, London, from 15th June 2011 (through 3rd September 2011).

Too bad they aren't available for easy Internet purchase!

The environmental impact of throwing away paper cups/plates is no worse than the environmental impact of washing cups/plates, which uses water, uses electricity to heat the water, and adds detergents to the water system.
