This salt fired ceramic tea bowl is made by Chicago-based artist Andrew Jessup. The vessel has a round organic, slightly asymmetrical shape and is glazed with geometric forms in brilliant reds, greens, blues and a deep glossy black. The forms create a modular, quilt-like composition across the bumpy surface of the bowl.
Approximately 4” x 3.5”
"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
