A Victorian - modern take on a Japanese style tea bowl / cup that will bring something special to whatever you enjoy drinking (tea to whiskey). A yunomi is a cup with no handle, usually shaped taller than wide for informal tea drinking. This one is glazed in a satin, warm-toned purple with a glossy interior of lavender, and encircled with a row of chubby birds. Style meets fun for everyday function.

These cups are ornamented with every type of surface deco I enjoy, giving each one completely unique, rich layers of elegance. I throw these cups 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 creating a great exterior texture as well as a lovely interior shape to your drink. I also decorate with slip-trailing (the clay version of cake decorating), slip-sponging, and underglazes. No molds are used, and each one is truly one-of-a-kind and handmade by me alone.

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.

4" h x 3 1/2" diameter; holds 16 oz
The clay and glazes are lead-free and food safe.

If packing and shipping costs are less than what I've listed to your location, I will refund shipping overages.
Your new piece is both elegant & intended for your use and enjoyment! Please follow the care instructions provided for your unique piece. Handmade pottery can need (and happily, deserves) a little more love to prolong its life than contemporary manufactured ware: Because of the abrasive nature of dishwashing detergent, which could eventually dull the surface over time, hand washing is not necessary, but recommended.

Please keep in mind that while my pottery is quite durable, it is still made from clay and can be damaged if dropped or knocked about. Often, flaws created during impact will not be detectable immediately. Impact flaws can develop into a crack or break with use over time.

I cannot replace ware damaged from use.
I don't usually take on commissions, but sometimes take requests. If you see something in my shop and would like it in a different color in my palette, or have seen something not currently available that I've sold in the recent past, please email me so I can consider your request and explain the payment process. Please note, it can take from 1-4 months to complete.
Kristen Kieffer / Kieffer Ceramics bears and accepts no responsibility for injury or damage which may result from the improper use of Kieffer Ceramics ware; from a product modified or repaired by others; or from abuse, abnormal use, or use beyond normal product life. Our maximum liability to you is the amount you paid for the item(s) purchased. Please read my Care information prior to using your Kieffer Ceramics pottery.
