This salt fired ceramic cup is made by Chicago-based artist Andrew Jessup. Hues of olive green, bronze, maroon, cream, and gold swirl through the surface of this vessel. The drips of the glaze create a marbling effect on the surface of the cup. The form of the cup is asymmetrical with narrow grooves along the surface. One side of the cup folds together slightly and a piece of clay extends outwards from the mouth of the vessel.
Approximately 3.25” 3.5”
"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
