In the hands of an expert ceramist, the once-simple cup can become an extraordinary work of art-as these 500 magnificent examples so beautifully prove. The exciting pieces come from an international array of artists, each with a unique perspective. The stylishly varied collection has a little bit of everything – the cups range from handbuilt to wheel-thrown, practical to sculptural, round to square. Benjamin Schulman’s ‘Stacked Teacup Set’ takes a strictly functional approach, while Heather O’Brien’s ‘Dessert Cups on Stand’ focuses on aesthetic form rather than usefulness. Annette Gates’ ‘Espresso Shot Cups with Rubies’ has a surface design of simple abstract lines and dots of glaze and jewels. Some are whimsical, others starkly conceptual. Every one is a treat for the eye.
