Tessellating Originals2014 - 2018
Inspired by the simple form of one little cup, the Tessellating Cup collection has been designed with multiples in mind. Pieces fit together as pairs, trios, quads, in circular formations, or as a large colourful, decorative grid.
Each piece is handmade by slip casting clay in plaster moulds that have been specifically designed by Lydia. The moulds are milled in high density foam by CNC machine and then cast in plaster. Once dry and ready to use, slip casting can begin. The ceramic pieces are first fired to bisqueware, then dip glazed in one pure colour, and then undergo a final firing.
As part of this collection, Lydia created five LIMITED EDITION sets of cups, complete with oiled plywood bases. One set remains: a set of 6 cups available to purchase from the Online Shop.
Lydia also created three LIMITED EDITION artworks: framed displays of Tessellating Cups. Two or these are available to enquire about, via the Online Shop.
