This Calabash is the creation of the Quebec ceramist Makiko.
Cup from Makiko | AbysseQuebec Ceramist Collection
Quebec ceramist Makiko Nakamura Hicher works her cups to give them this irregular and ageing effect.
She passes multiple layers of glaze with a sponge on each to acquire beautiful shades of colour. Then, material is removed with a needle to achieve the result desired by the artist.
These stages of creation give a lot of flair and texture to her pieces which are still light and delicate in the hand.
Each cup is uniquely crafted, with colours and capacity which vary from one to another. Beautiful artisanal work.
Diameter : 7.5 cm

True to her style, Makiko skilfully plays with colours and materials and once again offers us a harmonious cup that strikes a balance between delicacy and exuberance.
Setting this beautiful turquoise porcelain cup apart from Ms. Zhang’s collection is the chic, black interior and the gentle asymmetrical crossing of colours.
