The Anamorphic Cup is the first product to employ the centuries old visual play of the anamorphic cylinder.The stainless steel cup has a polished mirror finish.
The porcelain saucer is printed with distorted images or words. These graphics can only be viewed correctly though the curved, reflective surface of the cup. The image is indecipherable when the cup and saucer are separate.
"Anamorphose" is from the Greek ana, meaning "back" or "again", and morphe, meaning "form". It refers to a distorted image that only appears normal when viewed with or reflected from a special device. The most common of these devices is the anamorphic cylinder, which typically consists of a cylinder with a highly reflective surface, placed in the center of painting that is lying face-up. Such curiosities first appeared in the 1600s, and became popular throughout Europe in the 18th century.
We currently have a choice of two Anamorphic Cups (pictured opposite), tea and coffee.
The Anamorphic cups are sure to be a talking point whether your around at the vicar's house for tea and scones or hosting that all important meeting for prospective clients.
