Topics I've Started
Posted 1 Oct 2012Hi all,
I am very new to this forum, as well as to ceramics. That would be really appreciated if someone could help me out explaining the techniques to make double layer cup.
My guess is the artist makes two layers separately, bisque them both and then under glaze with colour and finally glaze them both in satin clear before place them in the kiln so that the glaze with melt down and stick the two layers together.
QuoteOhayou CKIEers! How about some coffee while I tell you about my project Holey Jolly Cup and my love for ceramics.
“What a wonderful world!” This is the motto that I live by and it reflects in all my designs. The idea of Holey Jolly Cup stems from the fact that I love to linger over my drink. It amuses me no end to see people gulp their drinks in a hurry. Tea and Coffee drinking can be a whole new experience if we just open our minds to the Holey Jolly.
Working with porcelain borders between art and creating magic. The process requires me to work with a hard-paste and then fashion it into these fascinating double-layered cups. The double layer acts as an insulator, protecting your hands from scalding while consuming a hot beverage. To add a dash of ###### I’ve added holes on the outer shell. My basic intention is for you to have an emotional connection with the cup that you use, and in turn enjoy your drink to the fullest.
The process may sound simple on paper, but trust me it’s a lot more complicated when you have to work with powder, fire and molds! Not only is it time consuming but also a delicate procedure. But none of this deters me from my passion and this is why I’ve come to CKIE. I need your support to fund this project and make it a reality.
It’s been a long journey for me, from Japan to London, studying at the Royal College of Art and working with the most talented people in the industry. I want to share my love for the craft with you. I want to be Holey Jolly with you!
