A cup that pleasantly surprises with its complex binding for the handle, a Gordian knot. It got its name from the complicated knot that Alexander the Great managed to untie according to tradition.

Each handle is hand formed with a clay coil creating imaginative bindings. It is then fired in the kiln and with the presence of fire, the handle and body are integrated into a single piece.
