Spleth Cups

Artist Tom Spleth creates an array of unique cups made of porcelain and beautiful animal drawings. Each month he adds an animal to the list in order to complete an alphabet of animals sometime in the future. You can also personalize a cup by selecting one of ten different cup bottoms including a triangle, hexagon or fluted pentagon. Spleth's cups are non-toxic, dishwasher-microwave safe and provide happiness and intimacy to the daily act of drinking. I can't say enough about these charming cups...oh did I mention they are made in North Carolina?!

I'm partial to the alligator, but which animal would you start your collection with?

Wow these are really cool! I love the alligator with his big jaws open! I'd love it if there was a platypus for P!

These are fantastic and something I had not seen before in this medium. Love! Oh, the armadillo I think. I like his rather serious persona. :0)
