What people are saying: "Your botanical designs are so bold and cheerful"
This is an original, small handmade cup and matching saucer that was wheel-thrown from fine porcelain clay. It was specifically made for Americano or cappuccino coffees. It comfortably holds 6-8oz. The cup nestles neatly into the recess of the saucer. The saucer rim is wide enough to comfortably carry the set, and to hold a little cookie on the side.
A whimsical image of blue coneflowers 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 flowers and leaves are then hand-painted on. A clear glaze is applied over the entire piece, except for the base.
Size: This handmade cup comfortably holds 6-8 fluid oz, making it perfect for the Americano or cappuccino lover.
Dimensions: The cup is approximately 3.5in (8.9 cm) tall, 3in (7.6 cm) diameter plus an extra 1.5in (3.5 cm) for the handle. The saucer has a diameter of about 5in (12.7cm) and is about 1in (2.5cm) tall.
** Locally supplied fine porcelain clay and glazes
** Glazes used are food-safe
** Microwavable and dishwasher proof (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.
