The Hunter: cup and saucer (with books)

Blue and white cup and saucer
30 x 30cm, acrylic on canvas
This cup and saucer was bought from an op shop ages ago. It has been on my 'discard' list for some time but it seems to survive all purges. It is English china made by MYOTT, with a blue and white pattern called The Hunter.

You discover when you attempt to make a ceramic cup how important handles are. This cup has an elongated handle and although you can't get your finger through it, you can balance the cup between your second and third fingers using the bottom of elongated handle.It might sound complicated but our hands do it naturally. Try holding some of your own cups and see what I mean.
