ok I'm really feeling love for this, any ideas about how to drill holes in the bottom of teacups? I'm thinking of using a masonry drill or maybe something with diamonds embedded into it and I'm thinking of using tape to stop there from being shards and chips breaking off.

People used to think nothing of recycling, for instance women during the war made clothes from their husbands suits while they were away fighting. We faced huge challenges in those days and our grandmothers could still teach us allot about re-invent re-new re-create.

one of the more wonderful modernist ideals was modularity. It's a post industrial ideal to be able to manufacture everything cheaply and quickly. this allowed Crystal palace in London to be built in record time but it was the modernists who grappled with finding the true aesthetic of manufactured and modular....it's just a shame it cost the earth but maybe in some small twist of fate the thing which can help us now is once again modularity with a greener hand? I don't know maybe?
I think this is wonderfully playful. I wonder how this material really would perform in the long run? I guess in my mind cardboard is a really temporary thing. but maybe I'm just full of preconceived notions. after all it is lightweight, strong, fully recycled or recyclable...and dare I say it can be beautiful too.
