This petite espresso cup is hand crafted on a potter’s wheel, fired three times and painted by hand with 14K gold luster. Accompanying each demitasse cup is a matching dish, formed from a slab and decorated with a heart of gold. Marianne Tolosa is the artist behind White Peach Pottery and is based in Virginia.
