Cartwheel Coffee

Cartwheel Cafe and Roastery is a new venture by Nottingham duo Alex and Becci. They had a clear image in their mind for a set of coffee cups with a gentle and simple aesthetic - no fuss or intense colours - and needed the coffee cups to be durable for heavy use in their busy cafe. We threw the cups in our speckle clay and applied thick coats of white slip whilst on the wheel at leather-hard stage, creating a two-tone pattern with a transparent glaze over the top for durability and to prevent staining.
