This new clay and colour combination was inspired by the sea and cliffs near Goddrevy and Gwithian. The Marran green on the warm earthy colour of the Lava clay reminds us of standing on windy cliff tops looking out onto the expanse of the deep green sea.
The 5 oz. Tea Bowl was first designed to be great for tea as the bowled shape dispels heat faster. Whilst working with Origin Coffee Roasters we found these cups are perfect for coffee or creating latte art as well. They are also lovely to have a between meal snack in such as yoghurt or chopped fruit for a little pick-me-up. The shape of these cups reflects the curvature of boat hulls, making the form perfect for cupping in your hand.
The lava flecked clay for these cups is slightly coarser than others we use giving it a pleasant rough 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 from Bath Potters 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.
