A Cupful of Craft
This winter we have launched a special collection celebrating the humble cup. In these strange times we look for comfort in the everyday, and a handmade cup can be a really special thing: to take out in the garden, to have waiting for you in the morning, to offer to someone who pays a visit.
We have invited several artists to create a series of unique cups for this collection including Fliff Carr, Yu Kobayashi, Katrin Moye, Ginny Sims, Michaela Gall and Emily Mitchell.
THE MAKER’S STORY
Fliff Carr’s Treasure Cups are all thrown from just a tiny ball of clay, the challenge Fliff sets herself is what myriad of shapes she can create from these humble beginnings.
Shapes and decorations are inspired by her expeditions as a mudlark, someone who combs the River Thames foreshore on the hunt for fragments of the past. Fliff’s aim is for each cup to feel like a ‘piece of treasure in your hand’ and with touches of gold and silver lustre amongst the hand painted lines, these certainly do.
