Turkish delight?

Inspired by the Turkish ritual by pouring tea from up high. I experimented with the nozzle and created several coffeepots…no need to say that pouring with these in a cup is well worth a competition…better save it as an art piece!

 

 

rechte turksekoffiepotFrom raw pieces to fully hand painted coffeepot, was a big step: Inspired by old Turkish porcelain I used the motives to connect old with new. It took me about 40 hours to paint it in an old Turkish technique, using underglaze for the color-drawings and a transparant overglaze.

Watering can or coffeepot?

From raw product to coffeepot… this coffeepot was inspired by arabic writings on (mainly Turkish) ceramics. Although raw it looks like a watering can, painted and finished  it refers very strongly to a coffee ritual.
