“This is a collaboration with the mother of my partner. She saw me put one of her cups on top of my wooden sculpture and said that she thought the materials looked good together. She suggested we collaborate so I proposed that I make a piece of wood for her cup and asked if she could make her cup for the wood. She decided to cut a hole in the bottom of the cup so you can see the wood from both sides and so that you know this is not a cup for liquid, but for wood.

Each one is unique, made by hand and worked to fit inside each other.“
