Conversation A- SOLD

Variant edition of 200 cups constructed from recycled tin cans from 2001-2003.
Each cup has a different product identity. 
Sterling silver or brass handles, gold rivets.

On the top of each cup are words or comments inspired by advertising. Each letter is cut from a tin can.

Tinted resin fills each cup to overflowing as if it were filled with "tea". 

A concealed rod holds each stack of cups together in a precarious position. Not unlike our current economy which has been severly impacted by overspending and consuming without regard for realistic finances.

Each cup is unique. 
2 5/8” height approx
5 ½” width approx.

Height of the teacups and the retail price vary according to how many cups there are in the stack.
