What people say: "This piece is so lovely and delicate! I love your cheerful designs."
An original, handmade porcelain small cup and saucer that were thrown "off the hump" on the wheel. The cup holds about 4oz (120ml) comfortably, and can therefore be used as a double espresso or cortado cup. A whimsical image of busy bees in a spring meadow is 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 bees and flowers are then hand-painted on. A clear glaze is applied over the entire piece, except for the base.
Size: This is a perfect small cup and saucer for an espresso or cortado. It comfortably holds 4oz (120ml). Dimensions for the cup are approximately 2.5 inches (6.5 cm) diameter at the rim and 2.75 inches (7 cm) tall. Dimensions for the saucer are approximately 4 inches (10 cm) diameter and 1 inch tall.
** Locally supplied fine porcelain clay and glazes
** Glazes used are food-safe
** Microwavable and dishwasher proof (although hand-washing is recommended to prolong the life of the piece)
** Suitable for both cold or hot contents
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.
Please send me a message if you'd like to enquire about ordering multiple quantities, to order this piece or other cups in another of my botanical designs, or to order this bee design on another of my wheel-thrown forms.
