Over time the tannins in tea, coffee and wine can stain the inside of your tumbler. If you don’t wish this to occur, remember to rinse them under water when you have finished drinking.


A note on colour, pattern and shade

The images shown here indicate the shape and size of this product – not the exact colour, pattern and shade.

Our ceramic works undergo blackfiring with natural materials such as leaves, flowers, shed snakeskin and feathers, and seaweed. These materials fire in different and delightful ways, revealing shades ranging from an almost limestone cream, through to gunmetal grey and moody charcoal black.

Shades from light to dark

Of course, this firing can only be performed once, creating one-off ceramic designs.

We endeavour to list the shade as lightmedium or dark in this product inventory. Please select one option from the dropdown – I’ll endeavour to match you to a piece with your desired shade. If I don’t have the desired shade, I will advise you, and we can discuss options.

In addition to the monochrome shades, an individual piece may surprise us with touches of colours such as reds, yellows, inky blues, ochres and gold.

We celebrate the variations and individuality  of each piece and we hope you do, too.
