Fabric? Ceramic? Yep! This series, titled “Alice”, is the gorgeous work of Israeli artist Rachel Boxnboim. Here, in her own words, are Rachel’s answers to my questions:

“The starting point of this project was my decision to sew a teapot, based on my mothers old teapot measurements and use the fabric as a mold. In addition to the teapot, i sewed a complete tea set – cups, plates, sugar container and a milk jug.

During the kiln-firing process, the fabric burns away, leaving a thin cloth-like layer of clay, imprinted with the texture of the original mold.”

Ah-mazing. I would now like all of my tea, from this day forward, to be served in hand sewn ceramics. Love, love, love.
