So I've been trying to make cups. The first thing you learn when attempting to throw is how to make a cylinder shape. Most anything you make on the wheel starts with a cylinder and is then shaped into another form. Considering that a cylinder is a basic thing you learn and cups are basically cylinders you would think that they would be easy to create. I find this not to be true. Its hard to make something simple, interesting, and usable all at the same time. The solution I have come to with these cups is to leave a larger concave space at the bottom to fit your hand and then add some interest up top by adding ridges.
