This last week, the latest EarthCup prototypes arrived. They are our first officially commercially usable batch! Commissioned by our friends Onet and Sophian, this first run of twenty will be put to use in their herbal drink ‘Jamu’ store in Ubud. The cup features their logo imprinted into the clay, a top cover, and the Virtue Principles of the Earth Cup, ink-stamped onto the side.
Already, I’ve ordered the next 30, and our potter is convinced he can improve the design. From using better ink, improving the cups water retention, the latching of the lid, the thinness of the walls, to the legibility of the stamp, virtually every element has room for substantial improvement.
