Zuzana Holanova, owner of bisqit, a porcelain studio based in Prague, has a collection of ceramic espresso cups called “Smoke.”
The collection has pieces in a number of sizes and colors but each item is meant to represent the unique and fleeting movements of wisps of smoke.
The handmade pieces are created by melting pigments directly into the porcelain and stoneware to create a slightly different look each time.
The espresso and coffee cups are glazed with a shiny finish on the exterior and interior or can be left unglazed to leave the cups with a matte finish.
All of the pieces are fired at extremely high temperatures and because the pigment is melted straight into the porcelain, all the pieces are dishwasher and microwave friendly.
