Riley 's Story with the ANAMORPHIC HORSE CUP

To enjoy all the free time she had on her, the horse rider and travel enthusiast, traversed the globe in search of new cultures, food and breathtaking sights that she could write about in her blog.

The traveler was obsessed with learning new things. She took up playing the violin, a new language and horse riding.

Surprisingly, horse riding became such a passion that she actually ended up owning a horse back in her home. “You never know what you will absolutely love doing unless you give it a try” she said.

 In January, She took a trip to an Asian country to experience the vibrant craft indigenous to the nation of Indonesia. More specifically, a village named Penujak where pottery and other arts are practiced widely.

The marketplace was filled with clay wares, matted table covers and almost everything could be beaded, from small blouses to purses. But the pottery section of the market was the densest. 

Women of all ages molded, burnt and finished their pottery from start to finish, in the open.

Tourists gathered around to watch the whole process and the blogger was one of them.

 The sophisticated way they let the vessel spin while they added features or removed mistakes, rapidly, fascinated her. She joined herself with some local women who were friendly enough to let her interview them for the blog.

They were making cups. Three of them were positioned like the three eyes of a coconut while she stayed in their middle.

One of them looked up to see the interviewer's awed expression. “They are porcelain cups,” the youngest woman said. Her words were laced with a thick accent. “Porcelain cups require a lot of attention and care.”

 Another lady turned to the intrigued tourist. “Because porcelain cups take a lot of time to make.

We have to be careful.” She watched them being careful. Their palms were dirtied with the material they worked with but the outcome was so beautiful, she could see why anyone would want to practice the art of pottery.

 The avid learner had found what she could spend her vacation doing. Her eyes caught something weird moving on the porcelain cups. Not on it, but in it. It was like an animal. As the female locals turned the cups to the right or left as they added features, the animal appeared to be walking.

 The cups were alive with those designs. “How did you learn that technique?” She asked. The body of the forming cup had a bird that flapped its wings up and down to make the bird actually look like it was flying, engraved on it.

The local beamed with pride. “This has been in my family for a long time and passed down from our parents. It is a very old technique.”

Riley had never seen its brilliance before. “Our ancestors taught the skill to their children, in some families in Penujak.”

 The other two women showed her theirs. One was like the waves of the ocean, moving, another one had a man walking his dog. It brought an idea to her head. She loved horses and now owned one back at home, why not have a moving horse in a porcelain cup?

 The locals were happy to make it for her as a souvenir but she insisted on paying for it. “Can you wait for long?” they asked. Soon, another local approached and went to work on the horse rider's special request and in the evening, the Handmade Locomotion Anamorphic Horse Cup was invented.

 These handmade cups that are developed in Penujak village are now being sold to support the locals in Penujak. The design is so unique, it really looks alive. 

An amazing combination of barrier grid animation and anamorphic projection rendered on elegant porcelain. The warped image on the saucer is reconstructed by reflection off the surface of the cup, however, the gold mirroring is comprised of parallel lines that only reflect part of the image pattern. Turing the cup (or the saucer and cup together) reveals a flying bird or running horse!

Random Fact

In ancient times, cave painters used this type of animation by cutting grooves into the stone then painting the edges. When you hold a torch up by the cave paintings and scan them across, the images begin to move.
This makes Anamorphic animation the oldest known form of animation.
