Mugs used in coffeeshops and hawker centres in Singapore are traditionally marked by the drink stall owners with coloured electrical tape or paint to differentiate the different mugs used by different stalls. This a set of colourfully-marked mugs that acknowledges and captures this aspect of everyday local life. The markings are made permanent by heat-screening coloured glass glaze strips onto the handles and base.
