These are a smaller version of our mugs, they are perfect for a shorter drink, made especially for long black coffee. Made with a sturdy handle, still with a two finger grip.
These are thrown on the pottery wheel and finished in our bespoke glazes, Pōuriuri means darkest green in te reo Māori, te moana pōuriuri - like the darkest part of the ocean. This green is true dark green.
These hold around 280ml and are 7.5cm tall and 8cm diameter.
All Thea ceramics are hand made so sizes and colours vary, they are dishwasher safe and are intended for everyday use.
