Great Design

What makes great design?  I think first and foremost, it is functionality and comfort.  Any woman who has worn 4″ heels for more than an hour can attest to that.  Or think of your favorite worn sweater, or that old comfortable chair.  Then comes aesthetics.

My son made me this coffee cup in his high school ceramics class.  It fits my hand so wonderfully, that it is always the first cup that I reach for.  Problem is, there is only one, and everyone else reaches for it also.   I love the earthtone colors, and the fact that it was made for me with love.  Let’s me think about him away at college every morning with my coffee.
