Shí Cup & Saucer

08/2017

The Ten Commandments. The base ten numeral system. Humans have ten fingers. Created from various polyhedra containing decagonal surfaces and cross sections, the Shi (ten in Chinese) cup and saucer celebrates the significant role that the number ten plays in our lives. Regular decagons can be found throughout its design, and the stacking of repeated sections is used to achieve a tapered silhouette. It is comfortable to hold in your hands, easy to drink out of, and suitable for the drinking of most beverages.
