What people are saying: "Your botanical designs are so bold and cheerful"
This is an original, small handmade cup that was wheel-thrown from fine porcelain clay. It was specifically made for enjoying an Americano or cappuccino. It comfortably holds 6-8oz. A botanical illustration of fresh, pink apple blossoms is hand carved into the surface using a technique that originated in Korea known as mishima in which I incised the drawing into leather-hard clay and then inlayed a black slip (liquid clay) into the illustrated lines. The flowers and leaves are then hand-painted on. A clear glaze is applied over the entire piece, except for the base.
6-8 fluid oz
Approx. 3.5in (8.9 cm) tall, 3in (7.6 cm) diameter plus an extra 1.5in (3.5 cm) for the handle.
** Handmade from locally supplied materials
** Glazes used are food-safe
** Microwave safe
** Dishwasher safe (but please load your handmade pieces in the dishwasher carefully - hand washing is recommended to prolong the life of the piece)
Please note: Handmade ceramic wares by their very nature are unique, inconsistent and may have some imperfections that do not detract from the beauty and function of the piece. Instead, these are indications of the maker's hand and I encourage you to embrace them. If multiple quantities of this piece is available, they may be similar but they won't be identical, as each one of them is individually made. Your piece may not be identical to the one shown in these images.
Are you looking for a unique gift for the people in your life? Handmade porcelain pieces make wonderful, one of a kind personal gifts for everyone.
