Knob Cup

This large sculptural mug was made from a ball of strong sandy clay. Its surface was left naturally textured by the movement of fingers pressing along its clay walls. Its rim is tapered, and its edges smoothened just enough for use.

The playful take on the knob-like handle is our exploration of ways one can hold a cup. Or perhaps it’s just a little nose to cradle. An Archimboldo inspiration, maybe? More to come on this series.

Pinch’s ceramic pieces are made with cone 6/7 stoneware, raku, terracotta or porcelain. Only food-safe glazes are used, ensuring the safe consumption of hot and cold substances in our products.

To retain the quality of your piece and ensure longevity, hand-washing with a non-abrasive cloth or sponge in warm soapy water is recommended. The products are dishwasher and microwave safe. However, we recommend that you avoid placing these pieces in extreme hot or cold environments (oven, freezer) or for prolongued use in the microwave, as this could cause thermal shock and result in cracking and/or breakage.
