I like big books and I cannot lie...
Mr Teacup was founded by Joanne Eubank, an independent designer maker often to be found nose deep in a book with a cup of tea.
Mr Teacup designs and produces hand drawn crockery which are inspired by tea, literature and moustaches...
Bespoke textile pieces were inspired by the maker's own wedding when she wanted to create special gifts to make her family shed some tears! Father / mother of the bride handkerchiefs have since been wildly popular gifts, much to Joanne's delight.
Mr Teacup's products have found homes across the globe and have been lucky enough to be featured in several magazines including The Guardian, Vogue and Frankie. We are constantly adding new designs to the collection, and enjoying receiving very happy feedback from customers : )
If you have any questions about making an order, or are looking for something a little different than what we have available, please do get in touch.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
My name is Jo, but some call me Mr Teacup. I like tea, biscuits and big books... I run my shop from my studio at home in rural Lancashire, UK.
Mr Teacup is actually a Miss ( ... 'Miss Teacup' was taken! ) and an art graduate trying to share her love of moustaches, tea and other pretty things with the world.
All my mugs are hand drawn using special ceramic ink, which is then set with heat. For the designs to last for a long time, please hand wash with care, avoiding abrasive materials. : ) I understand that my mugs are often given as gifts, so I always leave a note in the mug explaining about how to care for your mug.
