Old Ivory Cup
- 3.5" H 4.5" W
- Ivory, green, and gold
This beautiful ceramic old ivory cup by Bulgarian artist, Danko is functional art that will elevate your morning coffee or tea to a higher level of pleasure. Warm, yet refreshing shades of green, gold, and ivory perfectly depict the "old country" style. Each piece is hand-thrown and hand-painted, bisque-fired at a low temperature and then glaze-fired at a higher temperature for strength and durability.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Danko's grandmother was a potter and inspired him to start working with ceramics at a young age. After attending an art academy in the 1990’s, Danko traveled to Prague. There, he was fascinated by the designs and colors artists were using, and when he returned to Bulgaria, he began making pottery with bold, colorful designs.
The markings and designs on his pieces are drawn from those on the antique Bulgarian furniture and pottery he recalls from his childhood. His work melds an old world form with contemporary styling, resulting in objects which are expressive, whimsical and truly unique. Every piece is individually formed and painted and includes the artist's stamp.
