These beautiful ceramic cups are hand thrown and hand painted by potter Laura Huston in her Norfolk studio. The large, dark blue cups epitomise the beauty and individuality of handmade goods. Each one is unique in its shape and colourings, adding to their rustic charm and character. Laura uses a technique called, Sgraffito to add the pattern design to her work. Sgraffito involves the carving of a pattern into the "slip" to reveal the natural clay colour beneath. The slip being the liquid mixture of clay that Laura hand paints on to the leather-like hard clay before the first bisque fire and the addition of a semi-matt transparent glaze. Needless to say, there is a great deal of craftsmanship and work that goes into the making of each of these marvelous handmade mugs. Made exclusively for Such & Such, the design of the cups features a classic shape with a simple and beautiful pattern. Laura's work explores subtle variations of form, pattern and colour taking inspiration from pieces of antiquity as well as from everyday life.
