A Victorian modern, Art Nouveau -inspired handled cup with Moroccan flourishes that provides daily elegance for your morning coffee or tea. I glazed this cup in a satin, deep wine maroon with a glossy interior version of the same.

I throw this form on the potter’s wheel and then use a stamp I design and make to impress and alter the surface of the cup. My fingerprint is on the other side of each one of the imprints. The undulation from the stamping and relief of the slip creates a wonderfully soft and tactile surface.

The handles I make (two pieces) are hand-pulled, formed and added. I also decorate the top quarter of the cup and handle (and sometimes areas in the stamp itself) with slip-trailing --the clay version of cake decorating. No molds are used!

My work is both elegant AND intended for your use and enjoyment. Handmade pottery can need (and happily, deserves) a little more love to prolong its life than contemporary manufactured ware, so while durable and microwavable, hand washing is recommended. Do not pour boiling, stovetop water directly into handmade ware. “Pre-warming” pieces by filling with warm/hot tap water prior to pouring hot water for coffee or tea is recommended.

4" h x 6" l x 4 1/2" d; holds 12 oz.
The clay and glazes are lead-free and food safe.
