Protruding Finger Cups

The Finger Coffee Mug by Kinaceramicdesign Replaces Handles with Fingers

— April 14, 2013 — Art & Design
The Finger Coffee Mug by Kinaceramicdesign is a quirky take on a regular coffee cup. Instead of a handle to hold onto, the creative mug has three outstretched fingers instead.

The design of this handheld coffee mug means that it's perfect for gripping during times when you need to do different tasks at once. When you get over the traditional shape of a standard coffee mug, you'll realize that this alternative design is actually super user-friendly. If you're a caffeine addict who drinks coffee and tea daily, then you'll love this finger-inspired coffee mug that lets you get up-close and personal with your cup of joe.

This unique design was created by Etsy member Kina Gorska, and is sure to sell out soon, so make sure you get your hands on one in the near future.
