Teacup Art Assemblage Using Vintage Black And White Buttons

Anna Murfin: Artist And Potter Creates Teacup Made Out of Vintage Buttons

This post will be a quickie one. I wanted to share with you a friend's latest creation, a teacup made out of vintage black and white buttons. I can not imagine how Anna Murfin a very creative and magical Connecticut potter and artist was able to assemble these tiny buttons and have them form a tea cup but  if anyone can do it ....Anna can!
Anna recently participated in The Artist In Residence program at The Farmington Valley Art's Center in Avon, CT.

  1. This is very inspiring. I love tea and I love vintage (wrote a fictional 40s swing novel And this is right up my alley. I sew vintage too, and have tons of old buttons. Thank you for this wonderful idea!
