Small Running Scallop Edged Knitted Porcelain Cup

$55.00

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 sweet little ribbed and scallop edged cup. 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, is quite dense. What remains is the amazement. See all the photos to enjoy this one of a kind piece. Sometimes we have a more than one of this style, each one is naturally different. Yours will be similar in size and stitch patterning to the photos, but will have its own charms.

  • Formed from hand-knitted cotton
  • Sewn and hand-formed into shape
  • Translucent white
