Teacups that look better with age

I don't know whether or not this will ever be practical, but an artist has developed tea cups that form patterns as they age.

The interior surface of the cup is treated so as to stain more in predetermined places. The more the cups are used, the more the pattern is revealed. Over time they will build up an individual pattern dependent on the users personal way of drinking tea.
