Calligraphy Cups


Minimalist Japanese style, these white porcelain ceramic tea cups features layers of grey, white and graphite clays and glazes in a zen-like calligraphy. 

Each cup is organically hand-formed into its own unique shape, food-grade glaze inside, and matt finish outer.

Beautiful stand-alone pieces, and stunning as a pair or grouping, this collection features six vessels to choose from:

#1 Large measures 60mm tall and 70mm diameter at the top

#2 Large measures 60mm tall and 68mm diameter at the top

#3 Medium measures 58mm tall and 60mm diameter at the top

#4 Medium measures 58mm tall and 62mm diameter at the top

#5 Small measures 50mm tall and 66mm diameter at the top

#6 Small measures 50mm tall and 56mm diameter at the top

Handcrafted in Castlemaine by artist Gennifer Ciavarra.
