Title: ONKRUID
Material: ceramics
Year: 2012

ONKRUID is a product born out of a group assignment. It is a ceramic teacup inspired by the nettle. The nettle is an herb that is very emerging (think about textile made   from nettle fibers). Yet it is still seen by many people as a weed. If you are stung by the nettle your skin can get irritated but if you pick the nettle from the bottom you do not suffer from this reaction, and this fact, we have included in the concept for our teacup.

Instead of holding the cup by an earpiece, grab the cup from below, just like you would with the nettle, this way your hand is surrounded by the cup and stays warm by hot tea.

With special thanks to Debbie Strijtveen van ‘De Groene Lach’, who takes us with her to explore the world of herbs.
