LUCÍA OCEJO Faceted Tea Bowl in Pale Green

£35.00
Description

A ceramic tea bowl with a pale green glaze and faceted sides, handmade in East London by Lucía Ocejo.

The facets make this a tactile and pleasing object to hold while enjoying your tea or coffee. At roughly 300ml, this is a generously sized cup.

The exterior is glazed in a complex, pale sage green that becomes darker and more olive where it gathers in the grooves of the facets and at the base of the cup. 

The interior is a gloss finish with glaze droplets from the pigmented rim.

Flecks of iron are visible at the rim, and the turned footring at the base is left raw, creating a textural contrast between the glaze and the exposed clay. 

Stamped on the base with Lucía Ocejo's maker's mark.

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