Hand thrown on the potter’s wheel, the mini pourer is a vessel ideal for holding milk or cream to serve with coffee and tea. The pieces are double dipped in a satin glaze, with a raw clay base.
Kirikiri means sand or shoreline in te reo māori and is a rustic earthy glaze that lets the clay shine.
These are around 8.5cm tall. Please note that sizing is approximate as all items are hand thrown.
All products are oven and dishwasher safe.
Designed and created on Waiheke Island, New Zealand.
