Pia Baastrup Cup
Pia Baastrup is known for her beautiful series of folded transparent porcelain, From Paper to Porcelain. Everything for the series originates from models that are cut and folded in paper, either from one piece or by putting several pieces together, after which the model is transferred to the porcelain. Pia Baastrup first rolls out the porcelain into thin sheets, which she then cuts out according to templates, slits, bends or folds like paper and finally assembles. This creates cups, bowls, plates and dishes. Everything is made by hand without molds and there are therefore small differences in the individual products. Each item is thus unique and signed.
Handmade cups, can be used for both hot and cold drinks, but also as small bowls for sugar, jam or mustard. The smallest size can be used for saké, espresso, toothpicks or as egg cups for large eggs. Bigger sizes can also be used for candles.
