Crocheted Small Coozie-Style Porcelain Cup

$45.00

Your eyes will tell you this piece is soft yarn but your touch will tell you it’s clay. And they both will be right in a certain sense, because clay generally doesn’t get knitted, and knitting generally isn’t at all hard and stiff. But here it is: a lovely intricately crocheted and shaped porcelain cup. What’s going on? It starts with a hand-stitched cotton shape which is dipped in liquid porcelain, shaped as it dries and fired to temperature. The cotton burns away, leaving a lovely detailed memory of the stitchery. It is light, showing all the hand-crocheted details exactly as they were. It is strong because porcelain, contrary to its appearance, is quite dense and tough. What remains is the amazement. See all the photos to enjoy this one of a kind piece. We have several in this pattern, each one naturally different. Yours will be similar in size and stitch patterning – including those jiggy layers and connecting seaming – to the photos, but will have its own charm.
