This coffee can design mashes up different Lepidoptera motifs which results in some aerodynamic improbabilities but remains a lot of fun as to whether they would actually fly.  The sole bee on the other hand knows what it's about. 


The butterfly is seen as a deep and powerful representation of life with many cultures associating it with the soul.  It is also a symbol of resurrection and around the world people view them as representing endurance, change and hope.


Collective noun: A flutter of butterflies or a kaleidoscope of butterflies


Coffee Can is an 18th century description of a sometimes tall cup without a saucer… the forerunner of what we might call a mug. However, some did have saucers too so in that vein we continue to use the term to delineate from mugs and tea cups and saucers.


This design is dishwasher and microwave safe.

Butterfly Mash - Coffee can & saucer

  • Our designs are microwave and dishwasher safe – except gilded items which have a metallic finish. Each individual design description will confirm this information. Whilst Blue Artemis bone china is a robust product, we recommend using low temperatures and liquid detergents when washing, or alternatively washing by hand and drying with a soft cloth. Blue Artemis china is unsuitable for oven and freezer use.


    Each piece is meticulously collaged by hand using motifs from an eclectic mix of vintage and contemporary original transfers.  This means no two pieces will be identical and even when you select from a defined collection, there will always be minor variations from the images shown on the website. This is what makes Blue Artemis china distinct and truly unique.
