New cup production


Finally getting some cups made in the studio today. The design is inspired by 18th Century Japanese nabeshima porcelain. The big difference is that mine is machine made by a Canadian living in Scotland in the 21st Century. I guess its going to be different enough then. Nabeshima is a well known Arita porcelain with the distinguishing feature between it and kakaeimon is cobalt underglaze decoration. I have really admired kakaeimon porcelain for its sparse but vibrant polychrome enamel. This direction that I’m working towards is my relaunch as a full time maker. I am hoping to have a lot of these cups finished for our open weekend at Beaverhall Art Studios on the weekend of the 24th of November.
