Unbroken Cup & Saucer
Yoko Ono's Mended Cups bring poetry and soulful optimism to the daily ritual of drinking coffee. By linking broken objects to physical wounds and emotional loss, Ono celebrates the process of healing and starting over. The seven-cup collection features six cups with a painted pattern of delicate cracks. They are inspired by the Japanese Kintsugi technique of repairing broken pottery with lacquer that is dusted or mixed with powdered gold. Each cup has its own saucer, which features a handwritten inscription of the date and location of six tragic events in modern history. The seventh cup, however, is whole, and its saucer bears Ono's inscription "This cup will never be broken as it will be under your protection." Hand wash only.

This collection is exclusively released on the occasion of the artist's exhibit Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960-1971 at MoMA.
