There are certain objects within our homes that we find essential for their designed function, but possibly more importantly, for the feeling they evoke. This series was modeled after a child’s peek-a-boo cup, which houses a small figurine at the bottom of the cup, encouraging the child to finish their drink. It’s an entertaining object that displays desire. With this feeling in mind, I aimed to create a peek-a-boo cup for the adult. The object gazing up from the cup is symbolic of what people may desire most, stability.
