    Studio Work

    After receiving your order, I sit at my wheel and throw your pieces, and let them dry very slowly to avoid cracks.

    4

    Bisque Firing

    Your "bone dry" pieces are now ready for their first firing, the "bisque firing", a low temperature firing takes up to 3 days.

    5

    Hand Glazing

    After getting your pieces from the kiln (ceramic oven), I hand glaze them with your desired design using a special, raised glaze on the outside and 2 coats of Crystal Clear food grade glaze on the inside.

    6

    Glaze Firing

    Your hand glazed pieces are now ready for their final firing: "glaze firing", a very high temperature firing (around 2100 degrees) which brings the clay and the glaze to their final stage of completion. 

    7

    Delivery

    Your pieces are now ready for delivery!

    They will be tightly packaged to avoid breaking during transportation.

    In the very small chance that something breaks, please contact me ASAP for a refund or replacement.

  • About

    Elodie Massa,

    the artist behind Queen of Cup.

    Elodie Massa, the artist behind Queen of Cup

    From Paris to Portland OR.

    Elodie Massa, the lady behind Queen of cup, is a Parisian artist now happily settled in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. A couple of years ago, she retired from a 20 years career in fashion design and tailoring. One of her calling cards in the industry was her unique skills in miniature sewing. For example: having her called in when there is a need for fine miniature work, such as creating all the costumes for the character “Coraline” in the film by Laika.

     

    She now has embraced her new passion: Ceramic.

    Going from sewing tiny stitches to turning tiny clay cups was very natural. Her passion for tea drinking led her to creating tea ware. Porcelain and stoneware her materials of choice for this delicate work...

    ...hours spent behind her wheel, centering lumps of clay, turning small vessels, firing, glazing delicate designs... a meditative practice bringing her a deep sense of peace and delight that she hopes you will see and feel when using her creations.

    "Throwing off the hump" is the technique

    Elodie uses to create her work.
