To get started with production of these cups, Criscione successfully raised over ten thousand dollars through Kickstarter. His very informative and fun video on the page, thoughtfully explains the entire process of slipcasting these cups.
The Criscione design has intelligently translated the iconic percolator as a form for the production of coffee, to a form that relates to the consumption of the beverage. These cups are a unique and welcome addition to the long history of the Italian percolator.
These cups are now available at the Boston-based design shop, Room 68.
