Flame Cup - Donegal Spud
Our ceramics are handmade using local Indian clay and glazed with local ingredients to produce drippy, trippy, earthy effects. This size is perfect for small coffees and teas.
We don't usually use the product description space to tell stories but it might be a shame not to here. When we met the ceramicist who makes these he explained that he chooses they local clay he does because it's full of little impurities specific to the local region. When the clay is fired all the little impurities burn away inside leaving holes that make the final product lighter and better at retaining heat.
We don't know how unusual this is, or how much of this is now in our heads, but the cups do feel lighter than they seem like they should and have been keeping hot liquids hotter and cold ones cooler in our household for years.
