Stackable Nestable

New Duo-Cast Cobalt Cups

New for rcboisjoli is a great series of nesting wares based on our new technique of Duo-Casting. These vessels are fabricated with two layers of porcelain slip, cast in the same mould at the same time, resulting in a unique layered effect. We chose to go classic, using the traditional blue hues of cobalt, contrasted our usual white porcelain. The cups feature a blue tinted porcelain exterior that’s satiny, matte and smooth with a high gloss white interior.

The playful geometric styled form is perfect for nesting and stacking, but also totally functional too. 
Deigned as sets of two cups, or one cup and one bowl, depending on how large you are. They sit happily together, creating rings of blue and white.

Above you can easily see the two different layers of porcelain exposed in the rim. The blue is not just painted on, it’s actually built right into the wall of each cup. These playful cups are now available in our rcboisjoli ESTY shop.
