3 oz. Espresso Cups - Marran Green on Vulcan mix
This new clay and colour combination was inspired by the sea and cliffs near Goddrevy and Gwithian. The clay used on these cups was hand mixed by us to create a delicate fleck under the glaze. The Marran green on the smooth Vulcan mix clay reminds us of walking through dewy undergrowth along the coastline, with the sea always at our shoulder.
These 3 oz. Espresso Cups come in pairs, to enjoy a quiet coffee break alone or with a friend. The shape of these cups reflects the curvature of boat hulls, making the form perfect for cupping in your hand. They are also lovely to enjoy with warm Sake, or if you have a little one around, a small yoghurt snack.
The Vulcan mix clay for these cups is beautifully smooth giving it a pleasant soft texture to contrast with the glossy Marran green glaze.
Our cups are handcrafted and beautifully designed, with each piece having its unique softness and character. Every ounce of clay is sourced locally from Doble's clay pit in St Agnes and formed using a kick wheel by one of us.
Each vessel is microwave and food safe however, hand washing with care is recommended to maintain the unique quality of each piece.
Please handle with care when hot liquid is contained within this vessel, as the lower ceramic surrounds may become hot.

Hello there, we are Peter, Sharron, Matthew, and Viola and we run the Dor and Tan Studio. The story of Dor and Tan begins with a desire to break away from the disposability of modern life, to create objects with a more personal connection. We want our items to become cherished memories, that favourite cup you always pick when boiling the kettle, the soup bowl you reach for after being caught in the rain. Handcrafted items have a unique soft character that cannot be created any other way than by the hand of a maker.
