Stoneware Copita Soft Flecked Grey / Natural Clay
A perfect, little stoneware sipping cup - use it for everything from espresso to sake, mezcal or thick, Spanish hot chocolate. Made for us, individually, by San Francisco based ceramicist Julie Cloutier, these small, hand-formed cups are weighty and substantial despite their diminutive size. They feel great in the palm, and make anything you’re sipping all the more pleasant. A duo makes a sweet gift for a friend, and we keep a set of six in constant rotation in our own kitchen. For example, in addition to espresso, they’re the perfect size to serve a small, finishing taste of chocolate mousse - anything decadent and special, that you might not need a larger portion of.
Diversity is part of what makes assembling a collection of hand-made pieces interesting. Please keep in mind, as with any handmade object, there will be variations in the size and glaze (see photos).
Glaze: The glaze on these cups is a pale, soft, powdery gray with an abundance of freckles. The base is unglazed, natural flecked with pale grey, brown, and rust shades. The copitas are also available is also available in a soft lemon glaze, as well as an espresso glaze and dark brown base.
Each cup is about 2 1/8-inches tall and holds about 1.5 ounces.
Made in Northern California.
