This small salt fired ceramic cup is made by Chicago-based artist Andrew Jessup. The cup has a bumpy, slightly asymmetrical shape that is narrow at the plinth-like base of the vessel and widens towards the mouth of the piece. The cup has a deep grayish-black hue with hints of brown and bronze.

"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
