Aamu & Tumma Aamu Eggcups...


The titles of the pieces, 'Aamu' and 'Tumma Aamu' translate from Finnish as 'Morning' and 'Dusky Morning'. They function as hybridized eggcups which also contain a shallow cavity for condiments and a locale to place a flower.

Made of 3D printed porcelain they explore and push the more tactile qualities of a technology usually affiliated with more sterile outcomes.

Intended for daily use and engagement, the pieces (which comfortably fit the palm of the hand) have a pleasing weight, texture, and size that allows, even encourages, a more intrinsic and candid relationship to develop between the artifact and its user.


Through their utilitarian framework the pieces introduce - almost covertly - their handlers to the more subtle, sensuous, qualities and properties of objects, which will hopefully weather and age alongside their users for decades to come...
