Secret Garden Pink Cup - Small

Vanessa Conyers pieces create a beautiful image of an Alice in Wonderland landscape with her Secret Garden collection. This small cup includes images of giant deep pink and blue flowers and a molten sky of yellow, mauve and turquoise. Made from earthenware paper clay this mug has a delicacy and lightness but is in fact tougher than it initially appears.

The making process is a labour of love, each piece goes through numerous firings. Initially the clay is either smoothed or rolled out and sometimes impressed with fabric and textures (often the inside of a vessel). These are then wrapped around wooden forms or hand constructed into vessels which Vanessa manipulates until they collapse a little, giving them a quirky and individual appearance. Each piece is glazed and decals of designs added before they are finished with mother of pearl, gold and lustres. They usually go through at least 4 firing processes to create the final finish.

Fully functional and incredibly beautiful.
