I'm not going to lie, i saw this and gasped. The vibrant colour of the Red bow next to the mug just completely draws you in and the addition of the chains makes this piece just stunning. By far one of the best works by bloodpromiser. I just can't stop looking at it! Amazing. You find something new every time you look at this picture, whether it's the beautiful delicate porcelain teacup and saucer or the interesting texture of the wood it's sat on, you will find yourself coming back for more! The blue-ish shadows make this piece so interesting too.
Also, photographs of teacups and saucers Never get old.
At first I thought it the tea cup and saucer DID look like a top hat! It didn't occur to me that it was a tea cup and saucer until I read your description! It reminds me of Alice in Wonderland with the White Rabbit's pocket watch and Mad Hatter's top hat.
