The Rainbow Gold cup is a reminder to keep chasing your dreams everyday
One Tree Planted work with reforestation organisations around the world, helping local communities restore forests. Your coffee cup can help in so many positive ways. The trees planted help clean the air, provide access to clean water, restore habitat, provide jobs, health and remove carbon from the atmosphere.
Ceramic cup come with a eco food safe silicone lid. These lids and sleeve are microwave and hot and cold wash safe.
These cups are wheel thrown to the exact specifications for the silicone lid to fit. The cups have either finger buttons or a silicone band to reduce the heat transfer and make them comfortable to hold when filled with a hot liquid. I use a variety of clays, glazes, tissue transfers, wax resist, carvings, gold lustre, free hand painting and sgraffito to get the different finishes. Each cup is unique.
All items are handmade with love over a number of weeks and fired in my studio in Thornlands in South East Queensland. The clay does not like to be rushed and needs time to dry slowly as each step in the making process is completed.
I love to wheel thrown and also to hand build, so often use a combination of techniques. The glazes I made are all hand made using tried and tested recipes, as well as my own recipes I have created to get the colours and textures I desired. The majority of finishes I use have a number of glazes layered over each other to create a unique, one off original finish.
Food safe. Dishwasher safe but hand wash recommended.
Gold Lustre is not microwave or dishwasher safe.
All items are carefully wrapped and box packed for posting. I use a mix of eco bubble wrap and environmentally friendly recycled tissue and shredded paper to ensure your order reached you safely via Sendle couriers
