Cup, by Susan McKay

This semi-porcelain cup was made by the Scottish artist Susan McKay in 1988.

The triangular cup of slab-built semi-porcelain has a flattened rim, angular spiral handle and small feet. It has a semi-transparent general glaze, alkali glazes, and stamped and incised decoration.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
