$75.00 $11.25

A handmade mug or cup made from porcelain and pressed with natural linen

Description

Why We Love This

The ceramicist Yuka Uchida presses porcelain with natural linen to create a subtle and distinctive texture. It’s then rolled into a cup with a built-in handle, ideal for tea, coffee or cocoa. Each cup has slight variations due to its handmade nature. Lead-free, food-safe.

Story

The outside of this cup is unglazed, satin matte and the interior is glazed clear. The artist’s idea is to wrap the meal or beverage in fabric, so this line of ceramics is imprinted with linen. Porcelain was developed in China more than 2000 years ago, which is why it is often referred to as fine china. Ovo Ceramics brings modern design to this age-old material. This vessel can also be used as a holder for pens, pencils or utensils.

About the Maker

After studying architecture and fine art, then working in interior and product design, New York City-based Japanese artist Yuka Uchida founded Ovo Ceramics, a line of handmade porcelain tableware. The artist wanted to merge her passions for handcraft and product design, and in ceramics she found the ideal medium to do so. She is drawn to the natural texture, warm white color and flexibility of porcelain. A portion of every sale goes to All Hands Volunteers, a non-profit organization that provides hands-on support to survivors of natural disasters.
