Cool Stuff: Stain Cups

British designer Bethan Laura Wood's clever Stain Cups are designed to become more beautiful with each use. Wood treats the inside of each porcelain teacup so that, over time, certain areas pick up more stain than others. "The more the cups are used, the more the pattern is revealed," she explains.

The cups are £35 (about $50) each. Contact Wood directly to order, and check out more of the young designer's innovative wares right here.

Crockery that becomes dirtier with each use and can't be cleaned?

I'll stick with ceramics that come with glazed patterns... ; )

Nice to meet you, btw. Isn't it wonderful to meet such crafty people in the blogosphere?
