This ceramic bowl by Chicago-based artist Andrew Jessup is salt fired and glazed with hues of deep blue, cream, grey, and bronze with pops of white and red. The glaze has a slightly crackled effect and the colors swirl throughout the bumpy organic shapes of the asymmetrical surface. A small hint of red look almost hand drawn and a cluster of white, ribbon-like strips give the surface a uniquely corrugated texture. The interior of the bowl is glazed with a creamy, bluish-green hue with a small burst of burgundy.
Approx. 3.5” diameter x 6” tall
"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
