Description

You asked for them, you got them!  Espresso cups.  I made Taos Bloom Espresso Pair on the potter’s wheel from stoneware clay.  Working small can be challenging!  The cups hold about 3 oz of espresso and sit snugly in a matching saucer.  I pulled the little handles directly from the little cups and added a wee thumb stop.

Once the cups and saucers were trimmed, dried, and fired to bisqued, I glazed each part with a cobalt/navy blue with daubs of red gold on the outside.  The daubs create “blooms” of brighter blue across the surface.  I call this glaze technique, “Taos Bloom”.  I lined the cups with a red gold glaze.

Enjoy your favorite espresso, or perhaps green tea, with your favorite friend or companion.  Oo la la.

Fired to 2200 degrees F.  Safe for dishwasher and microwave.

Sold as a pair.
