These New Zealand Studio Potters took part in the Share A Cuppa Give-Away in August 2020 - please support them
Time for some really lovely sandy cups to remind us of the summertime days that are just around the corner! These beauties have been made for Share a Cuppa by
Sue Newitt @suenewitt
Tatyanna Meharry @thebusyfinch
Grace Uivel @ataceramics
The speckles on the texture of the cups are from different beaches around the South Island of Aotearoa and all move slightly differently in the clay depending on their geological location. A fantastic way to remember a sea time memory!
Made for us by
Nicole Kollig from Dunedin
Sarah Geary @sarahgearyceramics
Gael Abraham @gaelabraham.thepotterswell
They each have a beautiful interpretation of greens on them Gael and Sarah have made delicious drippy glaze combinations while Nicole has used flora from her garden to create native prints. They are each a very descent cuppa sized!
These wee beauties are from
Duncan Shearer @rahu_road_pottery
Galit Maxwell @galitmaxwell
Fiona Madill @bluffit.ceramics
They all have gorgeous toasty clays and have been born of extremes...from the range of firing, as in a cooler kiln for the red earthenware to a very hot kiln for the grey blushed stoneware....they also come from tight down at the bottom off the South Island to the top of the North Island. Each cup holds a medium sized cuppa and nestles snuggly in the hand.
These beautiful cups have been made by
Kate Fitzharris @kateoxide
Bleuette Hille @bleuclay
Sylvia Sinell @studiosinel
They hold a very respectable cuppa and are made from beautiful toasty clay featuring a range of glazes like swirly opalescent chun, soft satin celadon and texturally tingley wild clay slip.
Shades of White
These pretty wee beauties for Share a Cuppa come from studio potters
Elise Johnston @threecupsoftea.nz
Gwen Parsons @generalpotterynz
Emma Soppit @esoppitpots
They show how different clays can be, and the subtlety between them. Elise has used a white casting slip with a beautiful native illustration, Gwen has used porcelain and texture so that it is translucent when held up to the light and Emna has a white stoneware. So lovely!

Pop of Colour
These gorgeous cups are made for Share a Cuppa by
Emma Turner @emmaturnerceramics
Janna Van Hasselt @jannavanhasselt
Jo Howard @johowardceramics
They feature lots of lovely colour and graphic lines. Emma has used bright coloured clay for her handles contrasted by a paper bag coloured buff clay, Janna has bright pop coloured glazes with amazingly handpainted black line details and Jo has some lovely stamped text with "I'm so glad you're in my bubble!" printed on them. So clever these guys!
