Slightly curved form, the Espresso is the perfect size for your favourite shot or double. Fits neatly under the spout of any coffee machine. Each Espresso has a splash of colour on the front. This simple shape is inspired by my visit to Kuwait and it’s wonderful ‘Kahawa’ cup. I felt in love with the unfussy form; no handle, no saucer just a straight coffee!

All pieces in her latest range are made by hand in Silvia’s favourite terracotta clay that has been fired to mid temperature to give it a beautiful rich red colour. The iron in the clay finds its way through the grey-blue tin glaze and results in uniquely varying waves of speckles around the edges of the ware. The simple decorative quality of a coloured line is achieved through the use of a palette of complementary colours.
Silvia’s latest range takes inspiration from traditional tin glazed folk pots from her native Slovakia and from sources as diverse as Spanish drug jars to Iraqi dinner plates.
