Fossil pattern tableware

Hand-painted pattern consist of individual stripes arranged in groups of lines running in various directions. It gives the curved surface of the cup a sense of dynamic motion. The lines are painted with a coloured glaze on a raw Jingdezhen (China) ultra white porcelain. The contrasting finish of glossy on mat results in a tangible texture detected when holding the cup in a hand.
The Fossil pattern is a translation of the prehistoric imprints of plants and animals on rock formations, into to-day interior ornamental motives.
