The creation of the Ballare cup collection is one designer's attempt to bring a little drama to the dinner table. Few items in the home express the intrigue associated with an animated quality, which is why Yury Dovganyuk strove to capture motion in this graceful selection of teacups.
The very name of the drinking vessel translates to the Italian word for "dance." But even without knowing its name, it is impossible to ignore the elegant dynamism of the twisting form, executed with meticulous care to produce the sinewy sculptural effect of a twirling ballerina. To complete the Ballare cup collection is the undulating saucer which seems to dress the magnificent mug with a billowing tutu in the illusion of a spin.
