Handmade porcelain cup for drinking coffee, tea or cocoa
This handmade porcelain tall cup with an ergonomically comfortable handle is practical enough for the demands of daily living. Wilcoxson Brooklyn Ceramics are inspired by Mingei design, or Japanese folk art. Oven-safe and dishwasher-safe.
Mingei is a Japanese folk art movement developed in the late 1920s and 1930s. Its founding father was Yanagi Soetsu, known for discovering and appreciating the beauty in everyday objects made by unknown craftsmen. Made from a sheet of porcelain hand rolled into a perfectly scaled vessel with a sturdy handle, this mug is made special in part by its distinctive irregularities in the hand-wrought shaping and glazing. Individually built, glazed, fired and signed by the artist, no two pieces of Wilcoxson Brooklyn Ceramics are exactly alike.
Kevin Wilcoxson, artist and founder of Wilcoxson Brooklyn Ceramics in Brooklyn, New York, Is inspired by the simple utilitarianism of Mingei, or folk art style of Japanese ceramics. He designed his own porcelain molding process to bring together age-old materials with modern forms and functions. Each handmade, individually signed piece has a signature overlapping edge. Food-safe, oven-safe and dishwasher-safe, this practical porcelain tableware can be used daily. No toxic chemicals or dyes are used in his process.
