This small ceramic drinking vessel made by Chicago-based artist Andrew Jessup is salt fired and features bold hues of bronze and orange, olive greens, deep blacks with a hazy light magenta. Cream hues peek out throughout the surface of the vessel and the form is at once both bumpy and organic while also slightly rectangular in shape. The interior of the cup is deep black and and mottled with olive spots.
Approximately 2.75” x 2.25”
"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
