Coffee cup for everyday coffee. Perfect for espressos or ristrettos, it fits easily under espresso coffee machines and other percolators.
Each of these cups is a unique piece. Thus, they do not necessarily have the same format. This is one of the freedoms granted to the creator.
They are shaped by hand, one by one, on a potter’s wheel, then sculpted to form the facets. They are made of porcelain, glazed in satin white and fired at high temperature. The veneers can be extremely thin and reveal the translucency of the porcelain. The result is a play of light, shadow and transparency.
Free from decoration, the surfaces are no less pictorial. Depending on where the light comes from, the facets reveal shades of white. The play of light and shadow is both vertical and horizontal with the ripple caused by the passage of the faceting tool.
Apart from the visual appearance of this cup, its surface is pleasant to the touch. You can feel the traces of the manufacture by hand, the marks of the tools and the silky enamel that makes you think of the texture of the skin.
Due to the composition of the glaze and the great hardness of the porcelain, this ceramic is completely waterproof and non-porous. It is perfectly resistant to attacks from the dishwasher or even the microwave oven. Only a violent clash can be potentially fatal to him, like glass.
After a certain time of use, a coloring may appear in the bottom of the bowl, depending on the liquids consumed, such as coffee or certain teas. It can be cleaned with baking soda.
