TEA DANCING, Ann Van Hoey
For this quirky cup design, a thinly rolled slab of porcelain has been cut to shape using a pair of scissors, before being remodeled in the mold by overlapping the cut edges to form a feature of the vessel. Additional slab sections are used for the upper section of the cup, the handle, and the base. Coils have been used for the legs.
The work is fired to 2280ºF (1250ºC) with a transparent glaze to accentuate the whiteness and delicate quality of the clay.
