Why We Love This

This stout little cup fits in the grasp of a hand. It’s designed by Kevin Wilcoxson in the Mingei or folk art style of Japanese ceramics and made practical for any beverage or for serving condiments. Its small size is suited to drinks like espresso, chai or Turkish coffee. Oven-safe and dishwasher-safe.

Story

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. This cup looks as if could be paper, but because It’s made from porcelain It’s durable for today’s daily routine. Wilcoxson uses his own porcelain recipe, molds each shape by hand and adds a signature slight indentation and overlapping edge to make each cup unique. Individually built, glazed, fired and signed by the artist, no two pieces of Wilcoxson Brooklyn Ceramics are exactly alike.
