Espresso Cup – Grey / Red


Espresso cup with a grey body and contrasting red base.

In stock

With a super smooth, unglazed exterior, this beautifully colourful little cup is the perfect size for an espresso. Stackable, making them ideal for smaller spaces, each has been created using three different stained porcelains – red for the base, grey for the main body and white for the handle and the glazed interior. Ideal for getting your day off to a bright start, these are also great to pull out at the end of a meal; the grey of the main body goes with almost any interiors scheme while the base adds a little pop of colour. We love mixing and matching the colours for a bit of variety, which has the extra advantage that nobody forgets which cup is theirs!

The technique I use is called slip casting. Commercially, this process is used with machines to reproduce identical copies of one design, churning out hundreds of ‘perfect’ duplicates. There is something satisfying about imitating the machine – but with the ability to make every product individual. Simplicity and function are at the core of the work I make; each piece has been designed to be used and loved every day, whether that’s for a strong coffee to get going in the morning or a desk mate to store your favourite stationery.
