Bumps Tiny Cup

$45.00

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 doesn’t get knitted, and knitting isn’t hard. But here it is: a sweet little cup with texture bumps. 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, with all the handknit details. 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.

  • 100% Porcelain
  • Formed from hand-knitted cotton
  • Sewn and hand-formed into shape
  • Translucent white
  • Great with candies, trinkets, air plants
  • Glows perfectly with a small light
  • Absolutely mindblowing gift
