quirky porcelain molds


This is interesting, a little quirky for tea lovers who love porcelain tableware, fabrics and textures. Israeli designer Rachel Boxnboim has cast a ceramic tea service inside fabric molds. Called Alice, the pieces retain the texture and seams of the fabric from which they were formed.
Rachel Boxnboim pours the liquid clay into stitched molds and gradually syringes it out again, leaving a thick layer clinging to the inside of the fabric. The cloth burns away when fired, leaving the delicate ceramic vessels behind.

Find out more about the artist and see a video of her creating these unique tea pieces here. I have to ask, are they really drinking tea cups?
