Deep Folding Cables Knitted Porcelain Bag

$125.00

Your eyes will tell you this piece is soft knitting 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 knit and shaped porcelain low and long little envelope bag with deep interlocking cables all round. What’s going on? It starts with a handknit 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 knitting. It is light, showing all the handknit details exactly as they were. It is strong because porcelain, contrary to its appearance here, is quite dense and tough. What remains is the amazement. See all the photos to enjoy this one of a kind piece.
