This salt fired ceramic tea bowl is made by Chicago-based artist Andrew Jessup. The bowl has a deep black glaze with areas of dark brown and vibrant burst of yellow dispersed throughout the surface with a powder-like effect. The vessel has a bumpy surface with a waviness to the overall form. The interior of the bowl is glazed with a warm brown hue that has a very fine, sand-like speckle.
Approximately 4.5” x 4.5”
"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
