Mother’s Day…

April 21, 2007

Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Gift Ideas

For her and him, consider Terra Keramik handcrafted espresso cups, cappuccino cups and coffee mugs. Clean, simple designs and rich, saturated glazes in eight funky colors. Each piece is accented in platinum and hand-signed by the artist. Espresso cups holds a 2-ounce espresso shot and cappuccino cups hold a 5-ounce latte. Tulip shaped with round, interior bottoms.

Triple fired for maximum durability. Lead-free and cadmium-free glazes for an absolute food-safe finish. Dishwasher safe.

Handcrafted in Switzerland since 1984.

And to make a really bold statement, match the cups with a FrancisFrancis espresso machine available in equally funky colors.
