Broken Teacup


Unlike most of the broken objects I was working with at this time, this broken teacup was something of mine that I accidentally broke, not something I came across on the street.  I made ten slip-cast ceramic replicas of the cup in its broken state, and tried to sell one of my broken copies on eBay, but no one bid on it.

I also sent several faxes to various ceramics manufacturers to see if it can be repaired.
