Mini Bubble Espresso Cup


Inspired by the act of blowing bubbles, these mini espresso cups evoke nostalgic memories of those carefree summer days from childhood.  The excitement of blowing the biggest bubble, the intrigue of watching clusters form into different shapes and patterns, the joy of blowing as many bubbles as possible and the thrill of running after them – these are all the sentiments that inspired Alexis Doiron’s Bubble Series. What fantastic ingredients to add to your espresso!

All mini espresso cups are individually thrown and trimmed on a potter’s wheel, thus producing “bubbles” of various shapes and sizes. Layers of pastel-coloured glazes are applied and overlapped for colour variety and texture. So much fun to mix and match!

As each piece is handcrafted, no two espresso mugs are alike. Please email us to choose from a selection of available colours; if not, we will select one of our favourites for you!

Approximate dimensions: 4.25 cm high x 6.25 cm in diameter.

Mini Bubble Espresso Cup

From the throwing and altering of forms to the development and mixing of signature glazes and colours, Alexis' work is all handmade.

First, she applies a shiny transparent and an opaque satin glaze as a base. Then, selecting from ten or more different pigments, she proceeds to skillfully layer a seemingly endless coalescence of colours. The result is a harmonious, texture-like effect on the surface.  Each piece is original in and of itself but part of a cohesive style. Mix-and-match to create your own individualized collection.

Alexis Doiron lives and works from her home studio in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
