Ladle up the coffee!
The “slurp mug” is certainly not a boring everyday item. The ladle-like shape of the mug brings to mind the familiar move of soup tasting and offers a fresh and humorous look on the way we drink. The eminent handle gives the ordinary everyday cup an extraordinary character while it allows you not to get your fingers burnt from your hot beverage. This is definitely your cup of tea…!!… or coffee or chocolate… or soup! The “slurp mug” preserves the unique, ancient techniques of the Greek ceramic tradition and the functionality of the classical ceramic cup. The “slurp mug” is made of clay (stoneware) molded into a suitable cast. Clay is our natural choice of material because of its sustainability and its smaller environmental impact. The process of molding this cup with the exceptional integrated handle is manual and time-consuming and offers tenacious, cohesive ceramic object without attached parts. Achieving the suitable ceramic wall thickness in order to avoid deformations during the finishing and firing process was our biggest challenge. The “slurp mug” was presented at the SALONESATELLITE 2010 in Milan.
