Mirror Teacups Reflect Colorful Patterns From The Sauce
Mirror Teacups Reflect Colorful Patterns From The Saucers They’re Placed On
D-Bro, a Japanese design brand, has created a unique set of mirrored cups called
“Waltz” that gain their striking patterns and colors by reflecting them from the
saucers they come with.
First, the cups, which are made from Hasami porcelain, are coated with
palladium, a precious metal rarer than platinum and gold. The cups must be
absolutely perfect, because any small distortion or bump will ruin the effect.
Next, they are matched with saucers that have anamorphic designs (much like the
artwork in our anamorphic mirror art post). These designs look distorted on the
saucers but are transformed into more ordered forms by the mirrored cups.
