Coffee Cup with double twisted handle and iron pattern

65.00

These coffee cups draw their inspiration from persian Nishapur brass work of the 14th Century. Calling upon the shape of the traditional coffee cups, and reflecting the quality of the metal work in the handle. These cups are made by screen-printing patterns of iron onto paper and then transferring them onto the piece halfway through the wheel-throwing stage, a process the artist has dubbed "Volumetric Image Transfer". The pots are fired to 2300ºF and cooled without oxygen until 1375º, a process known as "Reduction Cooling" designed to retain the clay's black Iron color from the reduction of oxygen in the iron molecule.
