Chay’s entry into our Found Objects Found Art contest. P.S. Chay, we need to seem more of that flamingo pink laminate, dear!…
We found this little beauty when we were cleaning out the “mother-in-law” house of our 1947 ranch. For me it speaks of the optimism of the mid-twentieth century. It is hard to believe that styrofoam would have been considered magic anything- especially in today’s green age. Yet, in all actuality, styrofoam is “greener” than paper and uses less energy and materials to produce. According to the wrapper, these cups could be used at home or the office, for picnics, poolside, parties, patios and bar-b-q’s. More amazing still is that they are still intact in their original wrapper – apparently they weren’t as “magic” as they advertised. The original buyers only used 3 of the six cups.
