Rise & shine:
We molded these cups as closely as possible to heart of the palm. We wanted them to be round and comforting, like the first sip of a hot espresso. They also transform nicely into salt and pepper shakers for dinner time.
This Three Seven espresso cup was entirely handmade, following a long technical process specific to our workshop. After the steps of casting, drying and cooking, each piece passes through the hands of our illustrators before being glazed to preserve its color, pattern and design. After 12 days through the manufacturing process, it is ready to join your tables.
In the workshop, we work with a white clay which we dye with natural pigments. The ivory color of our dishes is an integral part of the brand's DNA. Note that the shades of ivory can vary slightly from one piece to another. The pieces are then illustrated freehand with an underglaze ink; mixture of pigments, clay and water, before being glazed in a transparent and edible enamel.
Use & maintenance:
- Machine washable
- Can be put in the microwave
- Do not use in the oven
The fine and thin aspect of our ceramic never compromises how durable and strong they are in the long term. Handle with care and caution, avoiding impact against your dishwasher, table and between products themselves.
Three Seven pieces are made of earthenware, which is a porous material by definition, and do not like water baths, as this could cause stains and infiltrations. No dip in the water pool for them: straight into the dishwasher is always preferred, which in addition to being more economical in water usage, will ensure optimal drying of your piece to preserve it over the long term.
In the case of hand washing, a light trickle of water will suffice.
