When creating these cups, I started from my own point of view: what kind of a cup do I need? I realized that the cups in my daily use have different purposes; in the morning I need my coffee to be drinkable fast, during the day I have more time, and it can cool down a bit more slowly. During the evening I drink my tea in piece, and it needs to stay warm for a long time.
This series of coffee/tea cups consist of three basic bodies: a tall and narrow one, a shallow and flat one and one in-between. Each cup has a unique handle and surface finish/design, I fell in love with creating one of a kind pieces using slip casting. I mostly played with colored slip, pigment paint, different kinds of glazes and glazing techniques, engobes and sgraffito.
Most of the cups have blue patterns on white porcelain base, my own modern interpretation of the traditional porcelain painting. The simple forms give support and room to the quirkier details. 2017 and 2018.
