by Tamsin Arrowsmith-Brown.
This is a wheel thrown porcelain espresso cup. It has been decorated by hand using a blue underglaze and finished with a clear glaze.
Individually handmade, each cup will vary slightly in size and dimension. The decoration is applied entirely by eye, using only a rough pencil line as a guide, which burns off in the glaze, ensuring that no two cups are precisely the same.
These cups are designed to hold a double espresso.
Size: 5.5 x 6.5 cm.
