ahmedabad/copper cup/tiger

the shape of this cup has an affinity to the zoroastrian fire bowl
that is used to keep the eternal flame, worshipped in parsi temples.
appropriately the piece underwent a threefold baptizing of the flames,
a bisque, glaze and overglaze firing, all at different temperatures.
when I called, the customer prepared a mouthwatering snack to show
how she would match and use the cup
