LUCÍA OCEJO Creamer with Side Handle in Pale Green

£30.00 Sold out
Description

A ceramic creamer with a pale green glaze, handmade in East London by Lucía Ocejo.

Ideal for serving milk or cream, this is a beautiful object on its own or as a set with Lucía's tea bowls or tea cups.

The creamer has a delicately formed spout and a distinctive handle that stretches out in a line from the body of the vessel. 

The outside of the creamer is glazed in a complex, pale sage green that becomes darker and more olive in certain areas, particularly along the handle and towards the base where it pools more thickly. The glaze also subtly forms rings around the body of the vessel, to emphasise the throwing lines of the making process. The interior is a gloss finish with glaze droplets from the pigmented rim. The base itself is left raw, creating a textural contrast between the glaze and the exposed clay.

Volume: approximately 195ml.

How to care for your creamer 
Wash carefully by hand with warm soapy water. To preserve your ceramics, do not place in the dishwasher.
