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 while it enhances the aesthetics
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.
