Suzanne Stumpf: All the Little Cups of my Thoughts, 2010, 17”w x 10”d (tray dimensions), handbuilt with wheelthrown components; porcelain and porcelain paperclay; oxidation fired to cone 10

The beautiful and charming Buddhist mediation: “I will drink thy consciousness as joy and bliss from all the little cups of my thoughts” inspired this work. Each cup possesses a slightly different form and exterior texture, while I limited the interiors to a palate of blues and greens.

The “gridded” tray evokes a chess board which is appropriate to the tenor of the work as chess is a quiet, concentrated activity.
