Now in Colors and With Individual Design
 

Time for new stuff! KopCup takes a giant leap from the well-known graphic design series to new stoneware glazed porcelain with individual color combinations.
 
“I find that the expression of the stoneware glaze is much more up-to-date. Using my experience, I can select the glazes and colors that I know will fuse well to create new exciting colors and effects.  The glazes have their own life though so you never know precisely how things turn out. But that’s exactly what makes it so cool and charming, explains an excited Karen Skotte-Lund, ceramic designer and owner of KopCup.
 
The new products present a completely new side of KopCup. As the lively stoneware glazes melt they flow together and form a creative spectrum of colors that are never quite the same, turning the ceramics into personalities with their own individual expression. All are different so you can find your own favorite vase or jewelry with just the right colors and effects!
 
While KopCup turns on the colors the form and prices stay the same. The products always combine utility with decoration, and KopCup is known for its Nordic design where everything is based on the slender cylinder shape.
 
So, cheer up your everyday life with KopCup’s ceramics - colorful decoration and practical functionality combined in one!

KopCup sells Quality from Work of the Vision Impaired


See my shared “team products” with Blindes Arbejde (Work of the Vision Impaired): Dishwasher Vase w/brush and Toilet Vase w/brush. This time I sell the entire product line from Blindes Arbejde, e.g. brushes and a hand drilled ball pen made from hard wood.
 
Blindes Arbejde, a well-established socio-economic company founded in 1929, employs skilled craftsmen who are vision impaired.  They work with brush and basket making, wood drilling and weaving. All products are handmade examples of genuine craftsmanship. The exceptional quality is obtained by the unique hands-on sense of detail possessed by people who see the world through their hands.

New product spring 2014: 
 

KopCup design gets a new twist.  Now the cylinder shaped cups are teaming up with a new, fresh and flat circle design – the KopCup plate.

Kopcup Complete for the Dining Table
With this expansion KopCup is stepping up to the plate by offering a complete series of KopCup dining service. Set the table with KopCup porcelain – cups, bowls and plates. Pretty for the eyes and practical for daily life and special occasions.
- The plate is deliberately made in a version that lands in between lunch and dinner plate size. It makes the plate versatile and helpful to control portion size for dinner, explains Karen Skotte-Lund, porcelain designer and owner of KopCup.

Serving platter or still life
Typcial KopCup style, the new plate is multi functional. Use it as a serving platter or arrange KopCup vases one the plate, creating your own still life!
The plate is available in the design series Ulrikke, Bertram and Graphic. As always a decorative design combined with practical durability. Of course it goes in the dishwasher!  Again smart with the smaller size taking up less room.
 
New product summer 2013: 

 toiletvases

Now the entire bathroom can be decorated with KopCup. 
The toiletvase is designed as quality wine bottle.This design gets the brush out of the somewhat yucky water that always accumulates and it also extends the lifetime of the brush.
The toilet brush is handmade by skilled craftsmen from Blindes Arbejde, a socio-economic company in Denmark, which promotes the employment of vision impaired people.

I have tidied up in the kitchen with my dishwasher vase already. From this January on I will deliver the vase including dishwashing brush from Blindes Work Denmark. The brush is pulled by hand and consists of beech and horsehair which ensure good performance and longer life.
It is pulled by hand by expert brush binders from the Danish blinds’ work project. This association promotes employment for visually impaired people nationwide.
