This set is my crowning achievement. I'm not sure how long it took me to paint it, but as a certifiable Potterhead, I am enthralled with the result.

The teapot is massive. Really, just massive. It's heavy, yellow-brown stoneware, and has a tall, spired lid and wide, curving handle. On one side of it I painted a large Hogwarts crest, and on the other, Jo Rowling's increasingly famous speech from the London Premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2:

"The stories we love best do live in us forever. So whether you come back by the page or the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home." -J.K. Rowling

I think I cry Every. Single. Time.

To accompany this teapot, I thought four house cups would be appropriate. (Bad pun intended.) So, each house has its own teacup and saucer, each with the appropriate emblem and colors, and each with a saucer covered in a swirl of description from the various Sorting Hat songs throughout the books. If you read the saucers, you'll have a good idea of what characteristics make Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw unique. (As if you didn't already know.)

Perfect for Harry Potter movie parties, birthday parties, tea parties, reading parties, or general daily tea-drinking fun. And if you know someone to fit each house, all the better!

This is the ultimate tea set for Potterheads, and is utterly one-of-a-kind.

All of my work is dishwasher and microwave safe, but should not be scrubbed vigorously with anything harsh. The paint is heat-set, and very well equipped to stand up to time, but can be scratched away if the scratcher is determined enough.

Frequently asked questions about OpheliasGypsyCaravan

All my pieces are scavenged from various stores, and I hand paint each one, so the short answer is 'no.' But if you'd like a reproduction of a past design on a different mug, I can absolutely do that. Please read my custom mug listings to see which one fits your needs: https://www.etsy.com/listing/109863641/simple-custom-mug-you-choose-the-quote?ref=shop_home_feat_2 ; https://www.etsy.com/listing/90199344/complex-custom-mug-you-choose-the-quote?ref=shop_home_active_5
That all depends on what I can find locally. Like sold mugs, I can't often (if ever) reproduce an exact duplicate of a sold item, but sometimes I can find similar pieces to paint the same way. These sorts of custom projects usually take a long time, mostly because the actual finding of the pieces is a long and involved process, but if you're willing to wait a bit, please get in touch and we'll chat about options!
Usually, when I post a large collection of mugs, I do it all at once, and alert my Facebook followers and mailing list of their availability. Since time tends to be of the essence in those situations, I don't measure each cup's liquid volume, because that takes a lot of time. But if you'd like to know the size of any given mug, feel free to message me! In general, mugs I classify as "Small" tend to be 6-10 ounces, "Medium," 10-12 ounces, "Large," 14-16 ounces, and "Extra Large," 18 ounces and up.
Absolutely! I have many custom options in my shop, from simple, black-text only mugs, to intricate, complex artwork and mug specifications, to bowls and decorative platters. They can all be found in the MISCELLANY section of my shop. (Please read the descriptions on the listings before you place your order.)
This question is one I still cannot satisfactorily answer, even after eight years of experience with these paints. The paint brand, Pebeo, claims that they are dishwasher safe, which is true in some respects. I have some mugs that I have been washing in the dishwasher for years, that are still mostly just fine. And yet, I think the dishwasher in question and the mug itself both impact how well the paint will stand up to that sort of washing. (In some cases, I think the detergent coats the paint over time, and even preserves it.)

On the other hand, I have seen mugs whose owners only hand-wash sustain significant damage from scrubbing. If you want to hand wash, take care to scrub ONLY the inside of the mug, and never the artwork itself.
Unfortunately, my mugs are not really wholesale material. They take me so long to paint that I really must ask the full price I charge for them, and can't discount for the sake of wholesale.
