porcelain cups by melanie sherman

I am re-visiting the cup again. It’s hard to transition from designing a flat surface to a round one. My budvases were designed to have as much surface as possible in order to decorate, so this form is a completely new challenge. I decided to take the ornamentation I use for the “Korsett” series and add the details onto the porcelain cups. The form lends itself to the subject matter. I am revisiting my older cup forms again, adding little details here and there, playing with the line work and witnessing how it all changes the form, or the object itself.
