I made Black Tie Demitasse and Saucer on the potter’s wheel from stoneware clay. I pulled the little hand directly from the little cup and added a wee thumb stop! Working small is not necessarily easier!
The cups are 3″ high by 2″ in diameter. Saucer is 4″ diameter.
Black Tie Demitasse and saucer is a balanced and elegant set. The cup fits snugly in the well of the saucer.
I glazed the set with a black satin matte on the exterior of cup and saucer. I glazed the interior with eggshell. The two make a sophisticated “black tie” affair.
Serve up your favorite hot beverage – Turkish coffee anyone? Double shot espresso perhaps? Cozy up with your favorite book or magazine while you sip your favorite hot beverage from your very own, handcrafted, cup and saucer. Satin smooth to the touch. Understated and visually pleasing. Add sophistication to your late afternoon tea or coffee. Display on a curios shelf or in a china cabinet when you’re not using it. Stoneware clay helps hold the heat in longer. So does the straight up cylindrical shape!
Treat someone else. Makes a great thank you gift; or, housewarming, birthday, holiday, or anytime gift!
Dishwasher and microwave safe.
Sold as 1 cup with saucer.
