Mark Foster Handmade Tea Cups MFTC1


$ 20.00




Beautiful tea cups with a two tone  exterior and a white interior.  Can be bought together or separate. One tea cup is tulip-shaped, narrow at the base and tapering outward to the rim. The other is round-shaped, widening in the middle before tapering slightly in to the rim. Together they make an eye-catching pair reminiscent to the meoto yunami husband/wife cups made by Japanese potters.

About the Artist:

Mark Foster/Happy Cat Pottery

Mark's work is heavily influenced by tea. That is, it best exists in the moment; sharing a cup of tea with others can provide a reprieve by dissolving basic social expectations and structures. Tea is a means by which to make connections, with life, nature, and those around us. I hope that my work brings others to find their own tea practice. Each piece is derived from function and form, and balances between a modern, distracting, clean aesthetic and traditional Asian techniques and designs.
