Ceramic Artist Kathy Gorg is inspired by nature and this cup and saucer is in her Calla Collection.
Gorg was initially drawn to the calla lily's elegant lines and soft curving edges, but came to appreciate its unique qualities: the Calla Lily has no fragrance or petals, is highly toxic if ingested, and its form suggests both feminine and masculine characteristics.
For her, the beauty and nuances of the calla lily embody the layers and complexities of one’s own personality and soul.
Gorg's Calla Collection is designed to recreate the simple elegance of the Calla Lily. The pieces were created using slabs made from white stoneware and hand made plaster molds.
Handbuilding this line allowed Gorg to make each piece subtly different from the last. A natural and simple color palette serves to enhance the work as well.
The end result is a graceful collection of functional pottery. It is her hope that this collection may inspire you to admire and appreciate the Calla Lily from a new perspective.
This Cup and Saucer is a simple and beautiful piece of functional art. It is one of those pieces that draw your eye. Everyone has to pick it up and touch it.
