CHINESE TEA CUP

CHINESE TEA CUP

£27.00

Jo Davies

Ceramic Chinese Tea Cup made in the UK by ceramic artist Jo Davies for AUTHOR Interiors' collection of luxury ceramics

Regular price £27 Sale

Expertly handcrafted by ceramic artist, Jo Davies, in her London-based studio.

This gorgeously small ceramic tea cup is made from porcelain thrown on the wheel by Jo Davies and then finished by hand. It has the classic twisting wheel-thrown lines and tactile feel that Jo's work is renowned for. It is glazed with a satin-matt stoneware crackle glaze in white reflecting the traditional preference for the pale colours of tea cups to drink from.

The design is inspired by a trip Jo took in 2018 to Jingdezhen in China, the home of Chinese porcelain. These cups reflect both Eastern and Western rituals for tea-drinking and celebrates the beautiful traditional tea sets used every day in China.

Why we love this product

An exquisite contemporary take on traditional Chinese tea sets that Jo was inspired by on her 2018 trip to China. This little porcelain tea cup has a rippled tactile feel which encourages slowing down and savouring small sips of tea. We love the power handmade everyday objects have to promote a mindful moment and this tea cup does just that. Ideal as a treat to yourself or as a gift to a tea-lover in your life.

Please get in touch if you would like your own bespoke tea set made. We can arrange for a set of 3 or 6 to be made for you as pictured or with a bespoke variation.
