These beauties can be used to add to your daily tea ritual, or as the special ceramics you bring out after a meal, to sip on tea or coffee with friends.
The sun is surrounded by a traditional Tonalá style technique known as “Gota Azul” meaning Blue Teardrops.
This teacup is painted in the traditional Gota Azul Tonalá style, in a vibrant blue, with a handpainted Sol at the centre and earth tone detailing.
Each teacup is approx 8.3cm tall, and 7cm diameter, and has a handle in earth tones.
It’s natural for each piece to have variations in the details, shapes, colours and textures, as each piece is handcrafted and unique.
About Cerámica San Germán
San Germán is a family-owned workshop with 37-years of ceramic tradition, based in Ciudad De Mexico.
The family originally from Tonalá, Jalisco, has embraced the traditional Tonalá style artwork through their pieces and this can be seen through the colours, and the designs of traditional Mexican art such as suns, moons, animals, flowers and cacti.
They create everything from start to finish, mixing their own colours in an artisanal way, using minerals that create beautiful colours when fired and finished.
All their pieces are made without toxins or leads, are microwave & dishwasher safe and can also be placed outdoors, without the integrity of the piece being lost.
