Week 06: Porcelain Espresso Cups
Coffee anyone? These porcelain cups are just perfect for a good Italian espresso! The blank sets were made by mano design and I designed the surface.
For the patterns I used motifs, which were screen printed on a ceramic film before. Mano Design offered a wide range of motifs, like flowers, animals, cartoons … Of course, I chose geometric shapes and stayed with circles and lines in the end.
The motifs are quite easy affixed to the cup:
– Cut out the motif
– Put it into the water and wait 5 seconds
– Take it out of the water again
– Release the liner
– Lay the motif on the ceramic surface and put in place
– Let it dry
– Fire porcelain
Appetite for more fine things made of porcelain? Check out mano design :o)
