Front Cover
Natalie and James Thompson Gallery, School of Art and Design, San Josť State University, Jan 1, 2002 - Art - 133 pages
For the past 25 years, Irvin Tepper has been engaged in an exploration of the physical and conceptual idea of the coffee cup. Endowed with animistic qualities, Tepper's cups (made of porcelain or bronze, seen in photographs and drawings) hear, think, and even speak, commenting on the stories they overhear and the lives they witness as we drink our daily cups of coffee--with friends, business associates, or just the daily paper.
