This salt fired ceramic cup is made by Chicago-based artist Andrew Jessup. The vessel is swirling with bronze, maroon, and deep gray hues throughout the asymmetrical surface. The base of the cup is slightly raised and the overall form of the cup has folds throughout the glossy surface. The lip of the cup is a creamy-golden hue and the interior of the cup is glazed with deep black and bronze which form a marbling effect.
Approximately 3” x 2.5”
"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
