120 ml We found this to be somewhere between an espresso cup and an Americano. Its perfect for Nespresso, long black and espresso. It’s lovely to hold.
A long black is made by pouring a double-shot of espresso or ristretto over hot water. Typically about 100 – 120 milliliters of water is used but the measurement is considered to be flexible to individual taste. The smaller volume of water compared to an Americano is responsible for its stronger taste.
Coated in enamel glaze. Water proof, glass like material easy to wash and care for.
Hand made in Sarah Zhiri’s workshop in Montreil, France. Her ceramics are only sold a few days at a time, several times a year to the public.
In 2015, I trained in turning and looking for enamels with Grégoire Scalabre and Christophe Bonnard, at the School of Ceramic Arts and Techniques. In 2017, I set up my workshop And the days after in Montreuil.
I feed my work with my career (classical dance, photography, art history): intention of the gesture, look at a curve and the meaning of a detail shape my ceramics. I guide the earth towards pure forms, leaving in places the raw material visible. The weight of the earth-matter is softened by the enveloping contour of organic curves.
By stripping the lines that I profile and the attention I pay to the finishes of my pieces (lips, feet, etc.), I imbue my tableware with elegance, which befits sober and minimalist, industrial or rustic and authentic universes.
Made in the workshop …
And the days after, these are entirely handcrafted tableware pieces. Day after day, respecting the slow rhythm of the workshop, I impose my gestures on the plates, bowls, dishes, trays… and develop my own enamels, in order to control the composition.
… and the days after, useful for you
And the days after, these are pieces of tableware with which you live on a daily basis, that you catch, fill, stack, bring to the lips, hold in the palm of your hands.”
