We commissioned Karen McPhail to design and make a range of bespoke earthenware coffee cups for us. Each one is completely unique and has been handmade and decorated by Karen in her studio at Carry Farm overlooking the Kyles of Bute on Argyll’s Secret Coast.

Karen trained at Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 1990. She makes functional and decorative earthenware ceramics for the home. Coloured slip decoration, printed decals and glaze are applied in layers to create a playful, collage like quality. Each piece is fired up to three times 1080 degrees centigrade in an electric kiln.

This wee cup is super cute and perfect for a morning espresso. It holds approximately 130ml. It’s fully dishwasher proof.
