Lilith Rockett, Porcelain Tea Cup

This elegant teacup, with a gentle surface of matte, white porcelain like a painter's empty canvas, rests in patient repose, awaiting the opportunity to become enlivened with your favorite oolong, sencha or wildflower tisane. 

Lilith Rockett, an American studio potter living in Portland, Oregon, works primarily in porcelain. Her work, created by hand on the potter's wheel, reveals a deep interest in exploring the qualities of the material: translucency, fluidity, density, and the velvety softness of an unglazed polished surface. Minimal in both form and surface, her work calls attention to subtle nuances of line and shadow, with a delight in the quiet imperfections that characterize the handmade.

"I believe interacting with the handmade enriches us by enhancing our feeling of connectedness. Our interactions with the objects in our lives are part of how we create meaning and personal rituals, like sharing a cup of tea or keeping treasures in a special bowl. These details invite us to the moment, to a presence in the moment, a quiet celebration of the experience of living.

Lilith's beautiful teacups are lovingly made by hand. Each piece is slightly unique - variations will occur.
