Badger at Sunset Cups
Badger at Sunset is a new design of tableware, a part of the Irish Nocturnal Animals' range. Badgers are one of a few large mammals still living on the Island of Ireland. They are of solitary nature and only emerge from their hiding places at the end of the day. They are very difficult to spot but I myself was once lucky to see a huge badger, leisurely crossing the meadow at sundown.
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.
