Pure Cup

With a simple shift in materials, the common dixie cup is transformed into an elegant comment on fast food culture! Instead of plastic, Maxim Velcovsky's Pure cup is made of high-quality porcelain. As a result, the focus shifts onto the fragile aesthetics of the form instead of its practical, mundane functions. A simple yet striking reflection of capitalism and mass production.

This particular design has a silicone lid that securely attaches to the cup. The outside is matte and the inside is glazed. I prefer a version that Starbucks put out a few months ago. Their version is pretty much the same, but the outside is glazed (and of course has their logo) and the lid is plastic with a silicone liner to keep liquids sealed in. The key difference between the two is the price. "I Am Not A Paper Cup" is roughly $20 and the Starbucks version is $12. The upsides to either is that if you are a daily coffee drinker, you don't have to trash a paper cup and plastic lid every time you get take-out coffee. The downside is that both of them hold about 8 oz. - not favorable if you normally order a "grande" at Starbucks. Another issue for commuters is that it is not spill-proof or splash-proof. And finally, the Starbucks version CANNOT go into the microwave.
