handmade porcelain espresso cup – black ‘DOTS’
handmade porcelain espresso cup from our ‘DOTS’ collection. This cup is handmade. Each cup is unique. Every single dot is put on the cup by hand and is made from black porcelain slip, which rests on the surface and creates a relief. The dots give a very pleasant tactile feeling to the cup. The relief feels like a ‘Braille’ writing.
The inside is glazed. The outside has a satin matt relief surface and is unglazed. This espresso cup is easily to clean. The cup comes carefully wrapped as a gift.
Dimensions: approx 7 cm high and approx 6 cm diameter
