the beauty of the stain*





Hallo everybody, please see how beautiful and intelligent is
Stain, a project by Bethan Laura Wood.
"Stain is a set of a teacups designed to improve through use. This project examines the assumption that use is damaging to a product (For example, scratches on an iPod). The interior surface of the cup is treated so as to stain more in predetermined places. The more the cups are used, the more the pattern is revealed".
When time and use work to do the product's beauty!
