I use a lot of bird imagery and I make a series of nest sculptures, so it felt natural for these to evolve from those as the cups did. These are made a little differently.
The porcelain cup is formed over a mold and the edges are pinched very thin like and eggshell. Black clay is then added and gives a nest like appearance. Just the cup is glazed inside and out. Glass is melted to give a jewel like center. The spoons are made in the same way, I form the handle as I add the black clay to the bottom.
