For some unknown reasons, I can't stop creating cups for Ceramics.
I am doing too fast for me to be able to order all of them.
So I'd like to share them with you.

First two cups that you have perhaps already seen in another post.

The Hypercube:

I am surprised that nobody has designed an Hypercube-like shape for Ceramics yet. So here is mine. The external cube as well as one additional face are missing the that you can see the internal structure and fill it with anything you want.

The Half-Hypersphere:
https://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/674x501_1205995_1139213_1373920962.jpg
The internal bowl is made of half a sphere (and thus it should be easy to drink it's content) and all the external structure is as well composed of spheres alternatively turned inside and outside the model. The name comes from the fact that if you complete this shape by symmetry you obtain what I called an Hypersphere by analogy with the Hypercube, but is is certainly not an Hypersphere in the mathematical meaning of the term. I am wondering if I should do a half-Hypercube...

And here are two new ones:
The Classical Cup:
https://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/674x501_1207140_1148992_1374267743.jpg
It's look seems quite classic, but its thickness varies from 3 to 5 mm. It is made to optimized the capacity while minimizing the surface (and thus the cost). I think is my most inexpensive cup so far.

And finally the Toroidal Cup:
https://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/674x501_1220879_1148925_1374265967.jpg
It is made from an elongated torus that gives it its shape and also two handles (so you can give the cup to someone else even if it is full of hot coffee). To close the inner hole of the torus there is half a sphere (not touching the surface of the table).

Tha't all for now but... who knows, perhaps others will come!




So many things to design, so little time...
