The Comfort Cup is a warm hug in clay form. It is specifically designed to make you pause, be in the moment, and feel the inherent comfort in cradling a warm beverage.
Made by Canberra artist Abbey Jamieson, the Comfort Cups are hand-pinched from clay. They have a delightfully heavy, rounded base and the curve of the cup fits perfectly in your hand. The cups are soda fired, giving them a gorgeous soft grey/brown patina.
The Comfort Cups come with a donut-shaped wheat heatpack that acts as a stand for the cup. Pop the heat pack in the microwave for 30 seconds and you can enjoy sitting with a warm, heavy pack on your lap while cradling a tactile cup. Pure bliss.
Times have certainly been tough, lately. The Comfort Cup will help you feel calm and cozy throughout the day.

The Story Behind it
Abbey Jamieson is a Canberra-based artist who works predominately with clay.
Through the processes of pinching and soda firing, she creates ceramic objects with
themes of comfort and connection. The unique soda firing process allows the
kiln to become an active participant in her work. This creates a contrast between the
slow, controlled pinching of clay, and the dynamic, spontaneous nature of soda
In 2018 Jamieson graduated from the Australian National University with a Bachelor
of Visual Arts (Honours), majoring in Ceramics. During her second year she spent a
semester abroad at the Alberta College of Art and Design, in Calgary, Canada.
