Handcrafted, individually unique ceramic Keep cups are a beautiful way to enjoy your daily sipping and a positive way to reduce your daily contribution to waste. Reusing your cup and taking your cup with you where ever you go to fill your cup, you are helping to reduce the number - over a billion coffee cups, of disposable cups that are thrown out in Australia alone. This is only coffee cups, if you are single using plastic cups for other drinks, you can add on several more million cups that are thrown out after single use.
Have you ever noticed how what you’re sipping tastes so much better from one time to the next? What you’re sipping from makes all the difference, adding to the experience from how you’re enjoying holding the cup to the way it flows into your mouth full of flavour. Hot or cold, glass and ceramic hold the flavour and body of your drink beautifully. The first vessels holding water, wine and herbal tonics discovered in archaeological digs were from clay and over the centuries we have added in the elements of glass and metal to craft beautiful cups, goblets, teapots, bottles to serve our chosen beverage.
These cups are wheel thrown to the exact specifications for the silicone lid to fit. The cups have either finger buttons or a silicone band to reduce the heat transfer and make them comfortable to hold when filled with a hot liquid. Carys uses a variety of clays, glazes, tissue transfers, wax resist, carvings, gold lustre, free hand painting and sgraffito to get the different finishes. Each cup is unique. Each ceramic cup come with a eco food safe silicone lid. These lids and bands are microwave and hot and cold wash safe. The best way to keep your ceramic cup in as new condition is to hand wash after use. Carys totally gets that this often is not likely to happen, so she thoughtfully fires all her pieces to the high temperature of 1260 degrees C so it is OK for the cup to go in the dishwasher. Just be aware that depending upon the chemicals used, you may find that over time the glazes can become dulled. Our advice, take a minute and rinse your best sipping friend.
