This cup is inspired by the gnarly textures and shapes of the Willamette Meteorite, located in the American Museum of Natural History. I think of these cups as abstract sculptures that you can drink from daily.
The carvings in the surface of this pot resemble the process of ablation, which happens when a meteorite plummets through Earth's atmosphere. Pieces of the space rock are melted and chipped off from friction. I carved textures into this pot to resemble the textures commonly found in meteorites.
All of our Stoneware and porcelain pottery is 100% food and dishwasher safe. Meteor pottery, including Meteoriod Cups and Meteorite Mugs, are made with Copper metal colorant and should not be microwaved. Microwaving these pots would be similar to a mild form of microwaving a piece of silverware. Do not microwave this pot.
How We Price Pottery
Each piece of artwork is priced relative to the time and materials required for creation. Intricate colors, textures and shapes generally take far longer to create, requiring higher prices. We hope that enough pottery styles are available so any of you can find artwork within your price range.
Read about the Willamette Meteorite that that inspires my pottery glaze textures and colors on this Wikipedia post.
