Our collection of handcrafted tea cups have been popular with our customers for so many
years because they represent everything that American-made pottery has to offer -
sturdy, solid design for years of use, handsome lines and form from the individual
crafting of each piece, and subtle nuances in the pattern from tea cup to tea cup as each
one is painted by hand.
We are proud to say that all our ceramic tea cups are handmade right
here in the USA at Emerson Creek Pottery - a domestic pottery company that has been located
in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia since 1977. All of our ceramic tea cups are
microwave and dishwasher safe, ovenproof, and 100% lead free.
I couldn't pick one piece - I had to pick a category, and you'll understand why in just a minute! Of all the Emerson Creek Pottery ceramics in my home, my favorite is my mug collection. Whenever my girlfriends, mom or any of my four sisters come to visit, we must have tea. Each of us takes joy in picking which mug to use. All of the nature-inspired designs are so charming it often involves more than one glance to decide. Whether retired or new, I love the patterns that wrap around the mug so my left-handed loved-ones can delight in the hand-painted brush strokes, too. Most of them have started their own collections. Limiting myself to one or two additions per year, I didn't realize I had accumulated so many mugs until they were gathered for a photo. A thing of beauty is hard to resist - especially when you can employ it in hospitality!
