Ceramic Mug Shots

 

The mug would have to be the most utilised item of functional ceramic wares.  In an age of  hi-tech and tough composite materials, it is remarkable that  ceramic materials are still favoured for mugs, even though they are breakable and on the bulky side. Whether it is earthenware, bone china, porcelain or stoneware, it’s hard to beat the organic earthiness of a ceramic mug. With the caffeine connoisseurs,  some people do over 30 cups a day, so I’d imagine a certain amount of bonding would be going on with their trusty ol’ coffee mug. The vehicle of the morning lifeline to get the day started and the companion of  the evening hot chocolate to help close it down. The hot chocolate of the 17th century was an extravagant brew infused with citrus peel, jasmine, vanilla, musk and ambegris.

Mug_and_Torus_morph

Pure trivia .      The next time you indulge a coffee with a doughnut, you might be interested to know :  the mug serves as one of the most popular examples of homeomorphism in topology. Two objects are homeomorphic if one can be deformed into the other without cutting or gluing. Thus in topology, a mug is equivalent (homeomorphic) to a doughnut (torus) as it can be reshaped into a doughnut by a continuous deformation, without cutting, breaking, punching holes or gluing.
