on how my saucer is a little “dishonest”

I’ve already noticed that the target word “honest” isn’t really working out EXACTLY the way I wanted it to. If you look at my definition page, I’m defining honest as something that is secure, good, genuine, stable, etc. – not necessarily “oh, this is so truthful and open and straightforward”. I’m interpreting ‘honesty’ through shapes and form – simple lines and clear proportions to each other from the cup to saucer to plate.
But since my definition seems to deviate from what everyone immediately thinks of when they first see the word honest, I’m going to toy around with materials for my saucer. What if the saucer was a frosted glass? Then you could see what was inside it; it would be honest AND open because it isn’t hiding anything at all, and the cup is still neatly nestled inside.

Welcome back! The show’s just about to begin.

Second semester starts today. Bright and early every MWF – 8am.

We need to make a cup, saucer, and plate (!)

I’m thoroughly excited for this semester, but still scared. I’m always nervously excited.
I always have an overwhelming fear that everything that can be made, already has been made and other than that we’re just copy cats…
And I know that isn’t entirely true, but when it comes to some common things (perhaps like dinnerware?), it seems to be

Good thing about this project is that we have to have three words as our target to help us conceptualize and focus
I’m not 100% sure of mine yet, but I’ve been thinking a lot & I’ve been playing with the visual thesaurus.
I like fresh, quirky, and honest thus far
