Great coffee deserves a great cup. These handmade espresso cups have a unique character, each one thrown on the potters wheel. The body of the cup has been deliberately made a little thicker than usual to maintain the heat of the coffee while drinking.
A tiny lump of stoneware clay is thrown in the centre of the wheel. Due to their size the making process requires very delicate finger tip pulling of the clay.
The slightly ridged throwing lines have been kept quite obvious to emphasise the handmade nature of these ceramics. These espresso cups would make a great gift for a coffee lover with an appreciation for crafts.
The cups stand at around 5.5 cm tall and hold 75 ml of coffee. Designed to withstand constant use with microwaves and dishwashers. More can be made to order if you require a set.
