Geometric Designs Reflect on Plain Teacups in Delightful Illusion | Inspiration: Imagine. See the possibilities. | Scoop.it

These handmade porcelain teacup and saucer sets may look like matched pairs, but it’s all a delightful illusion. When together, the cup appears to mirror a distorted version of the plate’s colorful geometric design. When separated, the colors scatter, and it’s evident that the cup has no pattern of its own. Its shiny, reflective surface allows it to pick up the plate’s pattern vibrantly.

What's Working

What's Working | Inspiration: Imagine. See the possibilities. | Scoop.it

Last month in Davos we announced "What's Working," a global HuffPost editorial initiative to double down on our coverage of what's working. While we will continue to cover the stories of what's not working -- political dysfunction, corruption, wrongdoing, violence and disaster -- as relentlessly as we always have, we want to go beyond "If it bleeds, it leads." ... What I'm talking about is consistently telling the stories of people and communities doing amazing things, overcoming great odds and coming up with solutions to the very real challenges they face. And by shining a light on these stories, we hope that we can scale up these solutions and create a positive contagion that can expand and broaden their reach and application.
