Porcelain mug with blue dots
This porcelain cup is hand built using slabs.
Measures approximately 4" tall by 3.25" across at top.
Stepanka works with very thin slabs of clay so the cup is very light.
Fired in a gas kiln.
Hand wash preferred.
Ceramic artist Stepanka Horalkova was born in the Czech Republic and moved to New York City in 1995. She is a self-taught ceramic artist, focusing her attention on working with porcelain. Her work is all hand built, mainly using slabs that can range from standing vessels to standing abstract forms, wall pillow forms, wall sculptures and functional pieces. Her fascination with geometric shapes and textures goes as far back as when as a young girl, growing in the Czech Republic. She works with a complex palette: under glazes, slips, glazes and metallic lusters.
Made in New York, NY.
