Birdy pick of the week: Bird nerd tea cups
Surely Houston-based ceramicist Carole Smith of McCheek’s Mayhem made these delightful ‘Bird Nerd’ tea cup and saucer sets with me in mind? The self-confessed bird nerd (tick) apparently ‘likes to look at pictures of wee birdies’ (tick, tick) and clearly loves a good cuppa from a fancy cup (tick, tick, tick). The mostly vintage decals and lettering are put through three firings in the kiln, so the results are permanent (though you should probably wash them gently by hand).
