Color the Inside

20 August 2009

loyal loot

Vibrant ceramic bowls dipping into trunks.  The rough bark contrasts with the smooth, perfect insides, making the insides all the more precious and hypnotizing.  Imagine wandering through a strange forest and stumbling upon these [once, on a hike in Colorado, I found a huge red mushroom with white polka dots, just like in Mario Bros., so I believe it’s possible].

mechanical cups

These I found at a surplus store in North East Minneapolis, PPL, which gets a lot of quirky, and sometimes even high design, name-brand items.  I loved the tool/faucet/mechanical handles, the wind up key being the most comfortable cup handle [ever].  And of course, the punch of vibrant color inside. 4 $ each, and sturdy to boot!  Maybe not as captivating, but a similar idea, and still delightful.
