I've been intrigued with the new tradition of a Miriam's Cup at the Passover Seder as the feminine presence filled with water to join the more traditional Elijah's Cup. I wanted to make a pair of cups which would go together, but reflect the symbols each represents.

My Elijah's Cup has an irregular edge. Tradition has it the Prophet Elijah didn't die, rather he ascended to heaven in a fiery chariot in 718 BCE. The edge of the representative cup mimics the flames of fire meeting the clouds in the heavens.

Miriam's Cup is decorated with wonderful glass charms shaped like timbrels (ancient tambourines). "And Miriam the prophetess, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her, with timbrels and with dances." When you lift the glass, the timbrels strike the cup, making a musical sound. The glass charms are handmade by Meital Plotnik, a wonderful Etsy artisan whose shop can be found here: http://Meital.etsy.com

Elijah's Cup is dishwasher safe. Miriam's Cup, since it only holds water, should just be poured out and allowed to dry.

Miriam's Cup: 3" (7.62 cm) H x 4" (10.16 cm) diameter

Elijah's Cup: 3.5" (8.89 cm) H x 4" (10.16 cm) diameter

The glazes are food safe and the pieces have been fired to cone 5.

I DO ship internationally. Convo me for shipping rates to your location.

Frequently asked questions about agru

If you have requested a custom order, please know it takes 4 - 8 weeks for a finished product. This is due to production time, drying time, and the fact each piece has to be fired to bisque stage, glazed, then fired again (each firing takes approximately 12 hours plus cooling time).
Pieces are dishwasher and microwave safe unless otherwise indicated. However, always check for a piece being hot before removing it from the microwave and, even though a dishwasher makes washing things easier, handwashing handmade pottery is advised.
I have made custom wholesale mugs in the past. If you'd like me to consider a project for your organization or event, please contact me and we can discuss it.
