When it comes to contemporary ceramic cups, Ben Medansky has nailed not only the concept, but their creation as well. Based in Los Angeles, California, the ceramist manages to take a traditional material and mold it into products that are familiar but boast unexpected details that set them far apart from any competitor. For instance, many of his contemporary ceramic cups have atypical handles, yet their overall look is comparable to iconic camping dishware.

Showcased in several galleries and boutiques including Steven Alan in New York and Table of Contents in Portland, the contemporary ceramic cups, among other items, are easy crowd pleasers. Poketo owners Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung say, "Both Ted and I love Ben Medansky’s ability to turn a utilitarian object such as a cup or bowl into an objet d’art that is both functional and beautiful."
