Urban Fox is a new design of tableware, a part of the Irish Nocturnal Animals' range. There aren't many larger mammals living in Ireland nowadays, however many of them adapted to share their habitats with humans. Many of us, urban dwellers, have a fox for a neighbour, and they can be frequently spotted walking around city streets on late evenings and early mornings. 

The cups are made of white porcelain clay and intricately decorated with black and coloured slips for striking contrast. In addition to the visually busy design, layers of decoration can be felt under your fingers, which adds to the tactile experience when using these pieces.  

Each cup is fitted with a large, comfortable handle- liked and praised by many customers.

The decoration is applied by hand by layering colours and revealing design elements with paper resist stencils. While all design elements are there, each piece has a slightly different layout. The cups are decorated on the outside only, the inside of the cups is left plain white.

Please, note that some cups may be slightly off-shape.

I like to think these piece will be used frequently; they are fired to very high temperature, made using high quality clay and glaze and meant to last.  They are dishwasher and microwave safe. Because porcelain clay does not like sudden temperature changes, please, do not use these in the oven. 

Tall cups - 9cm tall and 8 cm wide at the rim
