Handcrafted clay tea cup is created with warm feelings to let you enjoy a great design and comfortable shape. Every cup is completely handiwork holding a piece of craftsman’s soul. Potter took his inspiration from ancient Ukrainian pottery tradition, which embodies longstanding pottery manufacturing experience and expresses the spirit of unique Ukrainian pottery art. That’s why potter used milk firing technique, which includes several stages. At first, handmade clay art tea cups are wheel thrown and baked in the oven. After that, craftsman bathes pottery in the milk to achieve special properties, which protect ceramic mugs from moisture and growth of nasty microbes. So you can keep milk and other products during long period of time. After bathing in the milk, pottery mug is baked the second time at temperature up to 950°C, which gives handmade ceramic mugs a special effect of warmth, antiquity and artistry. They are also decorated with handmade Tree of Life pattern, which makes the cup more beautiful. The Tree of Life is the symbol of the progenitor of all living and the Universe combining spiritual and material worlds. This symbol is used in the mythology of different nations and lures with its colorful and unusual interpretation on the cup. Enjoy exclusive design with handmade ceramic tea cups! Glyn-kar workshop
