I was immediately repelled by the cup. It gave me a feeling of something that had been sitting there for while. like an old cup of tea. I felt the piece was designed to shock as well entice viewers.
Although looking at it for a while I then got a sense of warmth and softness. Which I believe the artist was aiming for.
My response to this was boring but beautiful. I couldn’t find anything that really appealed to me about this piece at all. I keep thinking it was pretty but was there really a point behind it at all?
