This delightfully spooky tea set is stoneware, meaning it is dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe. It's heavier than porcelain, but not too heavy! Each piece has spiderwebs, bats, crows, and skulls in an alternating pattern with gloss black stripes between them.

The set is slip cast from vintage molds from the 70s that I acquired when purchasing a ceramic shop's inventory. As soon as I saw the shape I knew exactly what I wanted them to be. Far from the original design intentions I'm sure, but the shape was perfect for my gothy-victorian-spooky tea set I had always wanted to make.

Each piece is cast with stoneware slip and allowed to air dry enough to handle. At this stage, they are incredibly fragile and I've broken more teacup handles than I'd like to admit! I clean each piece by hand, as the old molds tend to have a lot of surface issues that have to be smoothed out, or seams that have to be filed down. Once it's cleaned up, I paint each one by hand with black and white underglaze, use underglaze transfers for the graphics and do a bisque fire. Once out of the kiln, I again hand-glaze the black areas with a black gloss glaze and clear glaze over the graphic sections. A final firing makes them food safe and ready to ship.

From start to finish, each set takes me about 2 weeks to complete and is made to order.
