Small coffee mug made by Marina Lespérance Lopez in Montreal, Canada. The designs are inspired by vintage cake designs. This collection is made with marbled colored clay to make the body of the piece, and whipped colored clay in a pastry bag to make the decorations. In some pieces there are embedded elements like clay seashells, flamingos, and flowers, real gold and 100% authentic natural birth stones.
Mid-range porcelain, ceramic pigments, shiny semi-transparent milky glaze and real gold.
My personal favorite size of mug, it’s the perfect size and height if you have your everyday coffee from an espresso maker, it will fit easily under the portafilter. Ideal for americanos or flat whites and matcha latte.
Hand wash gently without abrasive to keep the gold shiny longer. My pieces do not go in the microwave. Handmade ceramics are fragile by nature, they should be treated with the same care as your fanciest wine glasses.
The dimensions given are approximate and can vary slightly. Each object is hand builded without the use of a potter wheel, and are never perfectly symmetrical. My pieces are all one of a kind functional artworks, and I favor artistic complexity over technical perfection. I produce the imagery on my pieces with multiple successive layers of colored porcelain, stoneware and minerals, so it is normal to perceive textures, small holes or separations between colors, or micro cracks in the frosting. Minimal flaws are to be expected. If there are more significant flaws that affect the function, the piece will be classified as ‘’seconds’’ and will be 50% off. If the flaw affects the beauty of the piece it will be marked as second and be 20% or 30% off. Please look at the images carefully as the imperfections are not hidden.
