Hand-thrown on the potter's wheel from gently flecked stoneware, these little cups have a satisfying dimple in which to rest your thumb.
Incredibly comfortable to hold, they are designed specifically to fit in your hand. Glazed with a transparent shiny glaze on the inside and on the outside either my signature oatmeal glaze, my lovely new glaze burnt umber, my personal favourite sea foam, or a fourth variation, a new textural addition, created by layering black slip and scratching into the surface of the piece before bisque firing, and then dunking in my usual oatmeal glaze. The result is a super subtle but visually interesting little cup.
The bottom centimetre of the cup is left raw, the textural transition feeling satisfying to the touch.
These cups are perfect size for a flat white or a little cup of tea, and are made by hand by me in my studio in East Bristol. Inspired by Scandinavian and Japanese design principles, I aim for a simple, clean, pared back beauty in the work I create.
