The Merchant's Table

Coffee Cups - Steven James Will


We've come full circle with a beautiful collection of coffee cups by Steven James Will. In the early days of The Merchant's Table, we collaborated with Workshop Coffee, serving delicious coffee in cups handmade especially for the event by Steven James Will.

Returning to our origins, we have re-stocked Steven's espresso cups and have new faceted cups, all made in Suffolk with materials sourced across the UK.

The faceted cups are porcelain with a decorative glaze inside and around the top of the cup. The cups are narrower at the bottom and wider at the top with a faceted edge shaping the bottom half of the cup. The darker cups have an iron-rich tenmoku glaze, whilst the paler cups have an eath/ash glaze made from a blend of Suffolk wood ash and Suffolk coast mud/clay.

The espresso cups are tapered at the bottom and straight where the glaze begins. Made from porcelain, these are finished with an earth/ash glaze made of Poole harbour ball clay and Snowdonian pine ash.

Steven Will’s pottery is located on the Suffolk coast, with much of his work rooted in the local landscape - Developing a colour palette and sourcing natural materials (mud, clays and wood ash) to decorate thrown and cast porcelain. Espresso cups, bowls, and mugs are thrown in the colours of the Suffolk coast.
