Tea Cup - River
Thrown by hand in clay coloured by oxide, each of these Tea Cups is unique in texture and character while following the same pattern of form and size. Each handle is hand-pulled in the artist's complimentary oxide-coloured clay.
Fired to 1200ᵒC, this cup is soft in tone, and the interior is reminiscent of pale, dipping willow leaves. The handle, a soothing grey, arcs across the exterior like a river around the light sand of a slow bend.
The exterior feels like a sandy stone surface, contrasted by the smooth feel of the glazed interior similar to a shiny pebble. Each of the Tea Cups is handmade with love, carrying 'imperfections' that make them unique and beautiful in their own right. The idea behind the design is to bring you a bit of the peace and rest of the countryside, and you will enjoy using it again and again.
Each of these items is unique so the object you will receive will have a slight variation, either with colour, size or shape, then the objects in the photograph, but it will carry the same high standard of craftsmanship and aesthetic.
