“PROXY Cup: A proxy cup is a transfer of a LIFEFORM into a functional vessel.
A proxy cup is made by grabbing a fist-sized ball of clay. This ball of clay is pinched and formed in the hand with all of the energy from my body and made into a primary drinking vessel. If this process doesn’t work, that same ball of clay is ripped apart and reformed and the process starts again and repeats until I have successfully transferred my lifeform into the object. Then we have what is called a proxy cup.

A proxy cup is a JJ PEET. A proxy is an agent or substitute authorized.

Distribution of Proxy Cup:
-Proxy cups are for barter only
-1 per person
-They are your primary drinking vessel
-The barter happens at a station”
