These winecups are the result of several strands of my life coming together. I previously worked in museums with archaeological collections where roman winecups were made of ceramic at a time when glass was hugely costly. My grandparents spent a lot of time in France and acquired the habit of drinking wine daily from small unstemmed glasses. What triggered them was my partner, who won't drink from stemmed glasses at all, so I designed these as a Christmas gift for him. They have gone on to be one of my best sellers.
The gently flared top section fits well in the hand and is pleasant to drink from. The unstemmed form makes them less formal so they are good for a little weeknight tipple. The additional robustness of the ceramic also makes them great for warming mulled wines in winter.
