New Cappuccino Cup Design

I was talking with a friend who's a barista, and he was saying that the handles on espresso/cappuccino cups are almost pointless because he can't fit his finger through the loop. It made me think, "Why even bother making a loop-style handle, then? Why not just make a solid handle that you pinch with your forefinger and thumb."

Here's the initial result in white porcelain with carbon trap Shino glaze, reduction fired to cone 10 in Cleveland by Junji Miyazawa.

  1. Brilliant. The curl gives the finger and thumb something to grip without trying to fit into an impossible space.
