A Cupful of Craft
This winter we have launched a special collection celebrating the humble cup. In these strange times we look for comfort in the everyday, and a handmade cup can be a really special thing: to take out in the garden, to have waiting for you in the morning, to offer to someone who pays a visit.
We have invited several artists to create a series of unique cups for this collection including Fliff Carr, Yu Kobayashi, Katrin Moye, Ginny Sims, Michaela Gall and Emily Mitchell.
THE MAKER’S STORY
Katrin Moye’s spectacular hand-thrown and hand-painted cups with saucers are inspired by 18th century Delftware and Faience pottery.
Each cup and saucer is hand thrown and decorated in the Katrin’s studio in Nottinghamshire, in the artist’s unique style.
“Using Korean wolf-hair brushes Katrin has been developing her Garland design, practising making the leaf patterns with a single brushstroke. “I love the way the cobalt blue underglaze in particular carries the sweeping mark of the brush with it; a fluid, expressive stroke permanently fixed under the glaze.”
