SECONDS SALE ~ These pieces are part of our Seconds range, and have one, or may have multiple of the following 'faults';

  • Slightly warped during firing
  • Uneven or patchy glaze line
  • A little heavier, or lighter wall thickness than our usual cups
  • Uneven or bumpy clay surface
  • Glaze flecks ~ spots that are slightly raised in the glaze, ranging from single larger spots to several smaller ones
  • Pinholes ~ small holes in the fired glaze surface
  • Chips on base ~ where the piece has stuck to the kiln shelf during firing, leaving small marks on the base. These are polished and we ensure no sharp edges can be felt
Please see photos for some of the faults described ~ each piece is different and you may not receive exactly what is shown in the photo.

    Gorgeous handmade ceramic espresso cup, made from white porcelain clay and hand-dipped in two layered glazes to create our stunning stormy blue colourway. This little cutie roughly holds about 5oz, as with any handmade item variation will exist in size.

    Each piece is created using a technique called slipcasting, where liquid clay is poured into a plaster mould, left to set for the desired thickness and the excess slip poured out. The inside of the mug is glazed with our non-toxic, food-safe clear glaze before being dipped in our stormy blue glaze.

    Dimensions
    Approx. 7cm diameter x 7cm high
    Holds approx 5oz
    About our Seconds

    Our seconds are perfectly imperfect, they just didn't quite make the final cut during our vigorous quality control process. Faults or irregularities are described in the listing. None of the faults affect the quality or durability of the piece and all pieces are guaranteed food safe.

    Seconds are restocked weekly after assessment of the week’s kiln loads ~ if your favourite is out of stock, make sure to check back soon!

    Care Instructions

    All our ceramics are made using Australian, non-toxic, food-safe clays and glazes.

    All our ceramics are fired to very high temperatures, making them very strong and durable. All of our pieces ~ with the exception of gold lustre decorations ~ are dishwasher & oven safe.  Take care to avoid sudden temperature changes (for example from the oven to a cold benchtop) as this is likely to cause thermal shock which can result in the piece cracking.

    Gold lustre finishes are fired in the kiln for durability & food safety, however please note they are not dishwasher or ovenproof. DO NOT microwave lustre pieces as we use true gold!

    Please wash before use.

    Gift Wrap

    Samples and seconds can be gift wrapped like all our other pieces. Please note that all seconds are labelled and include a card explaining our beautiful slightly wonky / offbeat seconds & samples.
