This salt fired ceramic cup is made by Chicago-based artist Andrew Jessup. The cup has a smooth, symmetrical round surface with a vase-like form that narrows at the neck and then widens again at the mouth of the cup. The vessel has a beautiful glossy deep maroon hue with bursts of gold and bronze on the lip of the cup and throughout the surface.
Approximately 3.5” x 3.25”
"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
