Well, I finally caved and ordered a pair of "rice" cups off of ebay. I've been fascinated with the style for some time and thanks to the folks on Teachat have become quite fond of them. There are small cutouts in the porcelain that are filled with glaze, letting the light shine through your drink and your cup. They aren't super fancy but I wasn't looking to spend a whole lot. I cannot wait until they get here all the way from England.
