Cup from Catherine De Abreu | NavireQuebec Ceramist Collection
The passing of time, longing, travel and a feeling of airiness: these are the thoughts that the artist wishes to evoke with this gentle collection, which is resolutely conducive to reverie.
Laval ceramist Catherine De Abreu advocates a contemporary approach to the objects she creates.
The craftsmanship behind these cups is what makes them unique as the colour gradient, intensity and patterns varies from one object to the other. Think of it as the yardstick of what handmade looks like.

Quebec ceramist Makiko Nakamura Hicher works her cups to give them this irregular and ageing effect.
It seems that a tea lover is at the origin of this Quebec cup for which we find nothing to dislike; the size, the grip, the glazed interior for more versatility, yet the raw and skillfully decorated exterior... everything is flawless!
