Pillar Rib Large Cup

$95.00

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 at all hard. But here it is: a lovely intricately knit and shaped porcelain ribbed cup in a unique pillar stitch. How? 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. 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. Sometimes we have several in this pattern, each one naturally different. Yours will be similar in size and stitch patterning – including that interesting pillar rib – to the photos, but will have its own charms.
