A very special one off treat! These little candy striped cups are a set of development pieces, real life sketches if you like, and are the only ones of their kind. They are made of once-fired parian porcelain with hand painted liquorice black stripes, and a hand curled catherine wheel handle. They’re just the right size for a short strong coffee, or a super rich hot choc.
Approx dimensions 9cm x 6cm x 7cm
Parian is a form of porcelain, named for the Greek island of Paros, known for its super fine, bright white marble. Hold on tight for the science bit… it has a more vitrified finish than standard porcelain because of its high feldspar content, which basically means it had a very dense, self glazing structure. That means that it is super strong, so the perfect material for jewellery and it will happily endure the every-day wear and tear you expect from your high quality hand-made homewares. Parian is also a vegan material, unlike some other porcelain variants which contain bone ash. Not suitable for dishwasher or microwave use.
