9.5 x 6.5 x 6.5 cm
clear and blue glazed porcelain
This porcelain cup is inspired by the patterns found in textiles and nature. The cup belongs to a series of works influenced by South Asian textiles and East Asian “Blue and White” motifs. Some of the Blue & White patterns come from discarded Indian Textile print blocks. Employed on the piece alongside patterns inspired by nature, the print block patterns give the illusion that fabric has been placed or draped over the areas they cover. This piece will make a beautiful addition to your home or would make an excellent gift.
