Blown Glass Tea Cup

  • This project was created with the intent to talk about how tea cups are one of the products that can be considered hairlooms as fine china is passed through the family generationally. Since each tea cup has a set of experiences that it has been a part of, I wanted to create a cup that would show its past experiences by making the tea cup's decoration reveal itself through more use. 
  • After the teacup was made, Stencils were cut out of tape and stuck to the inside of the vessel.The interior was lightly sandblasted. 
  • The tea cup was then soaked in red tea to stain the interior where it was sandblasted.
