Yoko cups mark tragic events

Yoko Ono is expressing herself through espresso cups. The artist and widow of John Lennon has designed a collection of cups and saucers featuring the dates and places of six tragic events written in Ono's handwriting, such as the atomic bombing of Hiroshima in 1945 and the day Lennon was shot and killed in 1980.

The collection is titled, Yoko Ono: Mended Cups - illy Art Collection, and is inspired by Kintsugi, the Japanese technique of repairing cracked pottery.
