DESCRIPTION

Cozy up with this hand-thrown ceramic cup with an indentation for the thumb. Easy to hold cup and perfect for juice, cocktails or water. Holds approximately 12 ounces.

All stoneware is crafted entirely by hand. Each piece begins as a ball of clay that is turned by hand on a wheel, and ends as a piece of durable high-fire stoneware. This process takes about three weeks to complete.

Heritage
Heritage products draw from age-old techniques, traditions or art forms that are in decline or in danger of being lost forever. Made Trade curates these heritage products from around the world to support artisans creating these traditional crafts, to share their cultural heritage with the world and do our part to preserve these centuries-old techniques.
Sustainable
Our sustainable brand partners are committed to responsible sourcing and intentional design that creates minimal negative environmental impact.
