This perfectly formed espresso cup is wheel thrown in durable earthenware. Incredibly tactile, the rings from the potter's wheel remain on the inside which is finished in a white glaze. Caroline decorates each cup by hand using brushes and handmade tools. The vibrant pigments are predominantly made from natural minerals such as iron and copper. Each cup, available in a choice of three subtle glazes, is unique with slight variations in pigment and decoration. Comfortable to hold, thanks to the generous handle, these cups have such character and make a lovely addition to your coffee break.
Materials and care:
Measuring 5.5cm in height x 9cm in diameter (including handle), each cup bears the initials and stamp of the maker on the base. If you prefer, a larger coffee cup is available in the range here. This espresso cup is dishwasher safe.
The Bridge Pottery uses a 100% green energy electricity provider for their electric kiln and locally sourced sustainable wood for their wood fire kiln. There is a strict quality control regime in place at every stage of the making process, so as to avoid producing 'seconds' or wasting materials and power. To optimise energy efficiency, each kiln load is packed to maximum capacity and only fired during off peak hours.
