Mindful Cup

Artist Statement: Stressed out?
Life going by too fast for you?

Practice some mindfulness with this beautiful cup and saucer set designed especially to help you stay present in the moment.

Just fill with your favorite beverage and sit back and enjoy the moment. If the mind starts to wander and/or you're tempted to multi-task you'll unknowingly try to put the cup down on any given surface. Since the cup can only be put down in its saucer the pointed bottom will instantly jolt you back into the moment and make you mindful of what you were originally doing = enjoying the moment.

Worried that there's no handle? Not a problem. When filled with a hot beverage wait until the cup is at a comfortable temperature to pick up - this then indicates that the tea or coffee is at the perfect temperature to drink!

When not in use, turn cup upside-down and it becomes a fabulous, decorative object.

Size: 5 1/2 x 5 x 5"
Holds 12 oz.

Hand-wash please.

THIS PARTICULAR DESIGN: Words are from a poem by the mystic, Sufi poet, Rumi. It goes something like this...

"The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you,
Not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along."
