Through a material investigation, the project probes the possibilities of utilising a plentiful, discarded and virtually free material to create valuable pieces. It aims to challenge the values & perception of a paper cup. The paper cup is valued for its purpose (hot beverage to go, easily disposed of) while holding no inherent value as an object. The proposed paper cups attempts to create intricate and beautiful textures while proving themselves useless as a recipient.
