Ceremonial Pottery Cups

Made of local clay with three kinds of glaze and created by Artisan Janos Herr.

The inspiration came from Native American pre-Columbian ceremonial cups that were used for a secreted caffeinated drink that was made from roasted holly leaves.
Each piece is unique with varying dimensions and sizes.  Small pinch pot style imprints.

Ceremonial Pottery Cups


From the Artist – “All my pieces are one-of-a-kind and it is a product of respectful communication between me and the clay. I like to think I’m just a tool to help this living material to be what it can be. Many times I incorporate some other materials from nature to create a texture or to be an equal partner of that piece. Sometimes I use mechanical parts to symbolize how humanity left it’s imprints on Mother Earth.”

General measurements (may vary slightly per item): 3.5″ t x 2″ top opening x 2.75″ bottom
