Two studio cups

Post by Guest on January 23rd 2018, 6:29 pm

This is one of two porcelain cups I bought from my local charity shop. They had a shelf full and it took me all of my will power to limit myself to two. All of the cups were by the same hand and feel very recent, but really nicely done. None of the cups were signed. All ideas welcomed, thank you.
Here are images of the first.

Nice shape and glaze, but the drip on the foot points to a hobby potter getting rid of their seconds or student work.

I'm going to merge this with your other post because I'm pretty sure theyre by the same potter.

Thank's Naomi. Yes, the certainly are. The whole shelf (at least 12 of them) were obviously by the same hand.

Glad to have a couple of their seconds, if that is the case.
Could it not be a case of the style, possibly Chinese, as every cup I saw was unglazed at the base?

Our local charity shop also had about a dozen pieces by a potter who turned out to be a recent graduate from Farnham College. I met her in the local crafts room at Farnham Art in Clay. You may well find your potter at a local craft show.

We do have a fair few potters within a 20 mile or so radius and I will have a dig, will update if anything interesting emerges.
What Naomi says makes good sense, though I am hoping that they were not given as seconds. For me, daft as it sounds, I am hoping that the way the glaze ends .5 of an inch or so from the base was deliberate and that the artist was simply inspired by some of the Oriental styles of days gone by.
I may well be popping back to buy the others, if they haven't been snapped up that is.
Thanks again for your input folks, much appreciated.

The way the glaze ends was deliberate and the maker has some expertise. If the others that you left have different types of glazes the likelihood is that he was using these cups as glaze tests and trying various combinations out.

Hi studio, the others were identical in terms of where the glaze ends (asides from the flambe one with the big drip - see above), but all were different in decoration.
Some real variety in the way the handles were crafted and applied, it did look like a showcase of skills.
I hope the rest are still there. Irrespective of who made them, they are an absolute delight.
Many thanks again.

I am not an expert on glaze composition but it's clear that this is someone trying out various combinations and showing skill doing so. The drip would have added something special to that cup, if it hadn't gone as far as it did.

Unless you are making a new year's resolution to change your username then why not buy!

Yes, I should have bought them, though the rule in this house dictates that one pot comes in & one goes out, so I have to be very selective with what I buy, or very careful with what & where I hide things Laughter
I popped backed this morning & the rest had gone. At least someone else is enjoying them.
