dc CUP (Happy birthday!)

 Le Déjeuner avec Rose

My homage to Meret Oppenheim at her centenary today

Surrealism... magical... sexy... humorous... deep, love it!

Back in 1993 during my study I did this photo here:

 Construction of Reality

 One of the cups isn't really a cup, it's only the image of a cup... 
like reality... the whole photo is only an image of the reality

And: there are many cups here at Rose:

 A cup at the 3rd dc
Two cups in the Garden of Isolde
Watched the conjunction of moon and venus with a nice cup of Earl Grey
 Had teatime on the balcony of the Castle at the Eisenbach
Mad teaparty with Alice in Wonderland (dc No 38)
Put a white cup in a black surrounding

dear Stefanie Seltner
thank you for this drawing challenge... you has hand me your theme cup on a plate
and it's even your birthday today!

  1. Liebe Ariane, na, das ist DEIN Thema!
    Wunderschön, ich bin sprachlos über die Rosentasse, einfach phantassetischl! (fun tasse tisch - das wär ja auch mal was...)
    Vielen Dank auch für die links und das Tassenfoto, sehr gelungen. Und natürlich danke für Deine Glückwünsche! Ich bin ja froh, dass ich Euch nicht langweile mit meinen birthday d.c.´s, nächst Jahr dann ja vorbei erstmal ;-)
    Ein schönes Wochenende Dir und herzliche Grüße
    x Stefanie

  2. Liebe Ariane, die wohl wundervollste und rosigste Adaption des berühmten Vorbildes, einfach ganz wundervoll und ganz DU! Hach, herrlich, genau wie all deine zauberhaften Fotos, besonders auch Rosenstrauch in dieser wunderschönen Vase mit deiner Tasse - den Löffel finde ich am allerbesten, das ist richtig genial! Der Meret häts gefallen!
    Schönes Wochenende und schöne Ferien,

  3. Äh, ich könnte danach ( also die 119) vielleicht noch ein Thema vorschlagen, wenn wir das nicht schon hatten... nein, ich glaube nicht. Also ich wäre bereit...

  4. oh my ....... ARIANE!
    this is so, so very beautiful
    i love it all and yes barbara is so right
    it fits the theme perfectly and
    it is so YOU!
    i keep looking
    scrolling down and up and down and .....

  5. Oh my, I love your homage! It is beautiful! No other words then beautiful and wonderful, WOW!

  6. I'll echo Celine and just say WOW! what a wonderful tribute to Meret, I'm sure she would be honored- not to mention Stephanie- totally cool wishes- I wonder how long your rose cup will last...would be interesting to photograph its eventual demise :)

  7. A lovely homage to Ms Oppenheim done a la Ariane! As other's have said "WOW"! Are you going to let the petals dry on the cup? xo Carole

  8. Marvelous, magical Ariane! Your rose cup delights me and fills me with joy.
    xxoo, sus

  9. dear ariane,
    is that your hanging cup collection?! I ADORE IT! anyhow, a collector of random cups, they decorate the space around me, this looks so inviting, to sit, with a tea, or a coffee, a calm and serious and funny conversation... many hugs to you

  10. so wunderschön und zart ist deine rosentasse! so fein dornröschenhaft - märchenhaft. man möchte sich hinsetzen und den feen beim tauteetrinken zusehen!
    alles liebe

  11. Ich liebe diese Tasse! Himmlisch!
    Kuss, Irena

  12. So beautiful and delicate a cup you have made. Your artist heart gives so much joy to us all. I appreciate you very much. Norma, xo
    p.s. love that photo. Excellent study. What grabbed my attention is that wood lemon squeezer thing. I have one of those. I love it hugely. :)

  13. multi-(literally)-rose-petal-layered blogpost! you outshine your own intentions! what a delight.
    this is rose petal tea, taken to a whole new dimension.

  14. the beauty of your cup does make me speechless....
    so i look at the rest of your post, interesting, but have to scroll upwards now once more, xx

  15. großartige Hommage! ja, genial, bes der Löffel!

  16. Hi, Ariane! this is great!

    I really loved this cup / rose,. I imagine myself drinking rosehip tea, closing my eyes and feeling her perfume!
    Thanks for your comment, and sorry for coming so late to your blog.
    have a nice weekend!!!:)

  17. Oh, wow! Ich bin begeistert von Deiner Umsetzung! Die Tasse (und der Löffel) - großartig! Und auch das Bild mit der falschen Tasse ist super, musste echt erst mal suchen. Hihi.
