This salt fired ceramic cup is made by Chicago-based artist Andrew Jessup. The cup has a unique, asymmetrical shape with bumps and folds embedded into the glossy, metallic gold surface. A hazy gray hue is dispersed atop the gold glaze, creating a smoke-like effect. The interior of the cup is glazed entirely with a soft mauve hue which is a lovely compliment to the gold exterior.
Approximately 2.5” x 3”
"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
