You may not be in the mood for anything else hot, but this cup of warmth looks cosy and inviting enough to change your mind! The round ceramic looks like a fluffy marshmallow full of cocoa, just waiting for the perfect warm sip on a cold day.
This newest addition to the Cuppa series is a bit out of season, but calls to mind crisp winter afternoons and the feeling of coming inside after an exhilarating romp in the snow. And isn’t that a feeling we could all use a bit more of this June?
Above, you can see a close-up of the delicate toasted-marshmallow color and the cheerful tag. Below, the cuppa is tucked in a frame, just waiting for the seasons to turn.

If you’re on my (admittedly tiny) holiday card list, you’ve already seen this art! I haven’t yet put the gold paint on this image for scanning reasons, but I’d be happy to gild the cup’s golden edges for you if you want some extra sparkle for your home.
This painting would add some cheer to any Christmas-celebrating home. Put it in a frame and pull it out at the holidays every year to celebrate both the season and the value of a good cuppa tea.
What kind of tea do you like best?
Above, you can see the holly decorating the teabag tag on this cheerful cuppa. Below, it’s sitting in a plain frame, though one could easily find a beautiful holiday holder for future display.

This is my favourite cuppa yet! The colours are mostly mineral pigments, softly desaturated and granulating in beautiful ways. There’s a wabi-sabi quality to the cup, with its uneven glaze, that perfectly cradles the beautiful green tea.
You can imagine breathing in the steam, cradling the warmth of the cup, the texture of it against your hands. Taking another deep breath of the subtle aroma before tasting the hot tea, its flavour grassy or nutty or floral. Whatever calms you, that’s what’s waiting in this lovely, earthy cuppa.

Above, you can see the echo of the cup’s colors in the mountain scene on the tag. Below, it waits calmly to find its perfect place in life.
