The Wearable Vessel is a reusable alternative to the ubiquitous plastic cup at art events. These drinking vessels are worn around the neck and held in the hand while full. They provide a “hands free” moment when one needs to eat or shake hands during which the vessel is gracefully suspended from the neck by a soft leather cord. Each vessel is designed to comfortably hold 5 ounces of liquid.
I will use a combination of wheel throwing and hand building to create a set of three unique wearable vessels for the Workshop Residence. I will work with a professional mold maker to create a set of molds from which I will cast a series of the three unique forms in porcelain. I will glaze the inside of the vessels and fire them a second time. I will also work with a leather tanner to generate soft and durable strips of calf skin from which the vessels will hang. The vessels can be displayed on a peg rack (as shown in submitted images). The Wearable Vessel could be purchased with an individual peg to hang from or with a small steel prong on a block of walnut to rest in. I will work with a blacksmith to develop the prong and with a woodworker to develop the block and the peg.
