Nouveau Teacup and Saucer

Nouveau Teacup and Saucer


The Nouveau Teacup offers contemporary sophistication. It's beautifully refined and delicately made. This cup is one of my favourite designs, not only because of its looks but also its feel. The addition of a saucer lends itself to days past if being used traditionally or doubles as a tea cake plate.

To ensure a pleasurable drinking experience consideration has been made to refine the rim.

These cups are hand thrown on the pottery wheel in an ilmenite speckled clay body and glazed with a gloss, high-fire black glaze with wax resist surface design. This glaze is food safe.

Due to the inherent nature of handmade pottery, variance in size, shape, and finish is to be expected and embraced. These pieces are dishwasher safe, to safeguard their appearance and ensure a lifetime of use we recommend handwashing.
