This salt fired ceramic cup is made by Chicago-based artist Andrew Jessup. The cup has a soft teal hue with metallic bronze and brown drips of glaze and hints of bright cerulean throughout the speckled surface. The cup is round with deep grooves and ridges along the corrugated surface of the vessel. The interior of the cup has a hazy creamy blue towards the mouth of the cup and a dark blue base with a cluster of light green spots.
Approximately 4” x 3.2”
"My pottery is about my struggle to create something truly unique. Whether it's a cup, bowl, vase or sculpture, I want it to be beautifully crafted and one of a kind. I appreciate oddities and try to reflect that in my work. For me, each piece of clay is born in the fire and has a lifetime of experiences to share with you. I have a story for each of them. I invite you, the viewer to look at each piece and find your own story." - Andrew Jessup
