Elegant, tactile, handmade blue ceramic espresso cups, set of two.
Combining sculpture and design, I create functional unique pieces.
These porcelain espresso cups have a delicate unique design, it will add a modern accent to your home, or it will make for a treasured gift for any coffee lover.
These pieces has been slip-casted from my original shapes and moulds in my studio in Digbeth, the creative heart of Birmingham, UK. They have then gone through a first firing up to 900 degrees.
They have a smooth tactile surface that makes it irresistible not to touch it. To get that beautiful finish I carefully sand the piece until I feel it is smooth enough and then I glaze it. They are then fired a second time up to 1250 degrees to make the cup waterproof, strong and durable.
They are dishwasher and microwave safe, but you get a longer life from handmade ceramics if you wash them by hand.
These ceramic espresso cups comes beautifully packaged in a rustic gift box and is then placed in a secure posting box.
Actual ceramic espresso mugs may differ from photograph. Each piece is individually made so there will be slight variations in colour and shape, which is part of their charm.
