FIRST EDITIONS: The cups that make up this selection are dear to The Bowl Maker's heart, as they are the first designs created 12 years ago to launch her reproduction line. They will be completely out of stock once these few pieces that she pulled from her personal collection have found their homes. May our cups be raised high to sweet beginnings! To ideas to taking shape! To all the work that comes from simply starting!

Lucky Cups are safe to put in the top rack of the dishwasher as well as the microwave. They are 3rd party tested for food safety. The bottoms of the cups are porous and will absorb water durning washing. It is best to make sure they can dry upside down completely before putting them away, thus allowing all the water to leave the cup to keep them in pristine condition.

Like prints of a painting, the cups that make up the Bowl Maker's “Lucky Cup Line” are faithful reproductions of Cary Lane's originals. Designed in her Washington State studio, made in Thailand. The facility meets European standards for people and planet.

Hoping for this animal in a different size cup?

People often ask if they can get their favorite lucky animal in a different size cup.

The short answer is no.

The Lucky Cups have each animal paired with a specific size cup. Cary gravitates towards matching the relative size of the animal with the size of the cup.

The Lucky Cups are a carefully curated line that require balancing capital and space constraints. Also, the art is painted specifically for each size cup--to move the art from one size to another distorts the proportions and does not work. Decisions have been made to keep a wide variety of animals, versus only a few animals put on every size.
