Ceramic Earthenware Coffee Cups

(1 customer review)


by Wendy Calder



My two biggest passions are coffee and craft and these cups involve both. These beautiful two-tone scraffito coffee cups are made from earthenware clay with cow parsley, dandelion and allium designs. Choose from a square-edged cup style with dark inner glaze or a rounded cup style with white inner glaze as show in the main photograph. The pieces are thrown on the wheel, the bases are turned when leather-hard and then a pulled handle is attached. White slip is then applied and the scraffito technique is used to produce the images.

The work is bisque fired to 1000oc. A transparent glaze is then applied and fired to 1160oc giving it a lovely toasty red finish. All cups hold 10oz/285ml. Cups may vary slightly from images as each piece is handmade and unique.

Dimensions: Height 6cm x Width 9cm
Care: Dishwasher and microwave safe, however Wendy recommends hand washing them with care.

Allium, Cow Parsley, Dandelion


I discovered Wendy Calder’s ceramics at a small craft market in Brislington, Bristol and fell in love with the beautiful cow parsley, dandelion and allium designs. I chose these new ‘scraffito’ two-tone coffee cups and milk jugs for These Two Hands as they are real stand-out pieces to me. Wendy is inspired by the nature all around her, in her lovely studio garden and in the local nature reserve. Graduating from Bath Spa University in BA Hons Ceramics, she has been making ceramics since 1996. She runs private pottery lessons and courses (I’m on one at the moment!) and children’s parties. Wendy is someone who makes everyone feel at home with her warmth and generosity and I think her beautiful ceramics bring that warmth and happiness in to your home too.
