About

Everything has its own pair; lock and key; outlet and plug, and of course men and women in relationship. When one meets the right pair, they finally work together and become useful. Inspired by this basic concept, the onliu coffee set was created. Its design emphasizes that one's flaw can fulfill another one's need and they can even create the best synergy. Based on the design of onliu, neither the saucer nor the cup can stand alone, but only when they meet together, they create a perfect coffee set that is spill-proof and aesthetically appealing. 

Here's how they get together.

  • THE POLE ON THE SAUCER PREVENTS THE CUP FROM EASILY FALLING AND SPILLING.

  • CUP HAS A WIDE-FLAT AND ERGONOMIC HANDLE, SO YOU CAN REST YOUR THUMB COMFORTABLY AND SECURELY.
  • THE HOLLOW AREA AROUND THE SAUCER PROVIDES AN ENOUGH SPACE TO NEATLY PUT SOME REFRESHMENTS.

THE TOP OF THE POLE IS THE CONTACT SURFACE BETWEEN THE CUP AND THE SAUCER SO IT CANNOT AVOID FREQUENT IMPACT ON BOTH CERAMIC SURFACES. THEREFORE, WOODEN CAP WAS USED TO ABSORB DAMAGE AND PREVENT POSSIBLE CHIPS OR CRACKS. 

The process of making onliu follows the slip casting techniques and basic process of ceramic firing.

CNC machine was used to make accurate molds for slip casting.

All of our products are made by slip casting techniques. The greatest advantage of the slip casting method is that an exact design can be repeated multiple times thus highly homogeneous shapes can be produced.

The onliu was created through the following steps of firing to achieve flawless dinnerware safe finish:

  • Bisque Firing – The dried clay is fired at around 800°C – 900° C (1472°F - 1652°F). During this process, the air between the clay gets evaporated and the clay gets harden.
  • Glaze Firing– The bisque fired clay is now then covered with clear ceramic glaze. Glazing works as protection to the cup by hardening and keeping liquid from penetrating the cup. Once the cup is covered with the glaze, it is fired at around 1300°C (2372°F)
  • Over Glaze Printing – The heart on the pole inside is colored with red to emphasize the hidden message, and our company logo on the bottom of saucer is colored black. All colors are finished with the over glaze printing technique and the finished set is fired again at least 900°C (1652°F) to eliminate possible toxic material in the glaze and make it to dinnerware safe coffee set. 

THE ONLIU IS DINNERWARE SAFE AND HARMLESS TO HUMAN BODY SINCE THE OVER-GLAZE PRINTING IS FIRED AT MINIMUM OF 900°C (1652°F).

Risks and challenges

We are really excited to launch our first ceramic product, ”onliu”. Our focus is to create a high quality, flawless product. We’ve already taken valuable time developing our design concept. It's now a functioning prototype, and we’re ready for production with our greatest manufacturer. There might be unexpected circumstances when it comes to volume production and it might delay the actual deliveries. However, we assure you that we will spend every single second for our production to be delivered to you all perfectly.
