An original, handmade porcelain small cup and saucer that was wheel-thrown, and a perfect size for an espresso or cortado. A whimsical image of a Mama bird tending to her nest in a cherry blossom tree 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 bird, eggs and cherry blossoms are then hand-painted on. A clear glaze is applied over the entire piece, except for the base.

Dimensions: This is a perfect small cup and saucer for an espresso or cortado. It comfortably holds 4oz. 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.

Please send me a message if you'd like to enquire about ordering multiple quantities, to order this piece in another of my botanical designs, or to order this Mama bird in a cherry tree design on another of my wheel-thrown forms.
