This ceramic cup is about an inch thick, making it perfect for hot beverages. It keeps the heat or cold drinks well insulated because of the thickness. The outside of the cup is a golden color, while the inside is white. the cup itself is on sale because it is damaged. In the video you can see that when i made the cup I didn't make it level. So the cup teeters somewhat. It does hold liquids without and leaking, and the cup doesn't spill easily despite the teetering.
