Be my Valentine
Personal gifts made from handcrafted porcelain
This year, the Valentine's Day gesture carries extra weight: a small, conscious luxury that you give to a loved one can set a unique point of light. This is excellently achieved with the extraordinary series of inscribed Valentine's cups by Stefanie Hering made of plain, velvety bisque porcelain.
Refined hand caresses
The handmade cups for wine or champagne, tea, coffee, water and all other drinks each bear a letter from A to Z or a number in deep cobalt, a special character in gold or a kissing mouth in rich red. A single vessel, for example, makes a beautiful gift for a name mug with an initial or functions as a personal greeting with a "kiss" - which is also the name of the collection that is especially predestined for Valentine's Day.
But you can also individually mix two or more mugs with different characters to create small messages - from LOVE and You & Me to Let Love Bloom... -, a year or a date. A beautiful reminder of Valentine's Day 2022 is created by the set of two mugs, each inscribed with the number "2" - making a total of "22" - as a tribute to a perhaps particularly romantic start to the year together.
But it is not only in the message, but also in the cup itself that there is a luxury that the recipient can enjoy for years to come. Each of these vessels has been made and decorated by master craftspeople for the recipient, in the tradition of the old porcelain manufactories. The letters are not painted but applied to the cups by hand using a printing process: Through an additional firing at 1400 degrees in the kiln, Stefanie Hering thus achieves a particularly beautiful aura of cobalt around the edge of the letters in the cobalt mugs. This effect cannot be achieved by painting and only forms on bisque porcelain - a speciality of Stefanie Hering. The pieces are absolute hand-flatterers, dishwasher-safe and only become more beautiful with daily use.
We will be happy to help you put together your personal favourites, by email, telephone or virtually, and send your gift lovingly packaged, directly and on time for Valentine's Day.
