Tea cups, perfect for your morning, afternoon, or even evening cuppa. set has 2 cups and 2 saucers. 

 

Bee line range

Our first line of tableware, made in stoneware with a third to two thirds mix of floating blue and clear glaze to show off not only the natural smooth clay below but a subtle appearance of the humble bumble bee and the flowers which they thrive on.

 

An attractive set suitable for everyday use as well as being the talking point of any table setting.

 

All items are make to order, current lead time is 2-4 weeks depending on items ordered (plates have to dry slower than cups and mugs)

We have started with some basics, we will be adding other tableware to this range over the next few weeks and months.

 

Hope you enjoy them, look forward to making them for you.

 

A little bit about us

As self taught lockdown potters, our work may be a little rougher around the edges than some makers, and indeed the perfection seen on social media. We work to refine the items but makers mark will remain.

 

All items are made by myself or my wife Sally and we are learning as we go. Everything is fit for purpose but occasional fingerprints, glaze lines, throwing marks will appear, I believe this adds to the uniqueness of each item, but please be understanding when plates stack a little oddly, or there are finger mark lines inside your coffee cup.

 

Also, some of these items are make to order and I have to stick to a making schedule as each item goes through the following process.

Wedge, make, dry, trim, dry again, fettle, bisque fire, glaze, then glaze fire, finally the item will be checked, base sanded smooth and packaged up securely to arrive to you in the quickest time possible. This currently due to the damp weather can take up to 3 weeks. And that is for listed items, if it’s an addition to the range then design, testing, glaze testing, costing, photographing, and listing is added to the process which are all usually done by me.

We truly hope you enjoy your item(s), thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this, hope you have an amazing day.

Alex and Sally

  • A little more info and production time

  • IN CASE IT'S NOT QUITE RIGHT

    As a made to order item, I cannot offer refunds once the make has started, should any issue out of my control occur then contact me and I will always work hard to arrive at a mutually satisfactory outcome, after all this is ceramics, breakages all too easily happen and i'm at the mercy of parcel post whichever avenue I use and they dont always show the same respect that you  or I would.

    It is paramount that you are satisfied as our customer, if we fall short anywhere, please get in touch.

  • SHIPPING INFO

    All items are packed with care, and a lot of bubble wrap and (a lot of) eco friendly packing peanuts, we work on the principal of if it shakes it breaks, this is also a sizable cost to us hence the shipping has to cover these, If you live anywhere near Winchester and are able to travel, get in touch before ordering and we can arrange an item to be collected instead.

     

    I generally use royal mail, but if in good time, occasionally use Hermes, you will be notified when its sent and have tracking info when applicable.
