Exploration with the glass carafe took through lots of shapes.I started with the design of my carafe with hopes of adding metaphors in to my product to give it more meaning. So I started playing with leaf shaped cups. So I knocked up a quick blue foam cup to see how it would feel to hold and drink from. After having several people hold and try the foam cup it went down well. The leaf cup will join on to a cylinder water vessel.
I used more blue foam to quickly play with how the cup will join together and have the idea clear in my mind before speaking to scott glass to see about having the glass made.
