Prep cups, sauce cups, dipping bowls, mise en place. Great for syrups, soy sauce, oils, compotes, dressings, herbs, condiments, spices, ingredients... These little cups are so handy in the kitchen and at the table.
They are glazed in a soft variegated speckled denim blue mingling with a dark almost black, with faint touches of green, and natural browns where the claybody shows through the glaze. Each cup is scribed "gem" "2012" underneath.
Food-safe, microwave, and dishwasher safe. Hand-washing is recommended due to its size, unless your dishwasher is designed to handle small items. Treat carefully as you would fine china.
Lightweight, thin walled, not clunky. Made from a North Carolina clay that is between stoneware and porcelain, so texture is smooth and fine yet earthy and strong. Painted with non-commercial glazes formulated at my school and fired to ~2200 degrees Fahrenheit for a vitrified watertight finish.
Humbly handmade by me, Gem, in Tampa Bay, FL USA.
Imperfections are part of the nature and charm of handmade work.
