Cheer yourself up with a deliciously pretty porcelain mug handmade by British ceramicist Alice Garland. Each piece is, it seems, individually made from sheets of paper porcelain which are then hand-painted, built and fired, and each is a one-off (first picture, Blue Scale teacup; second picture, Flowers coffee cup and saucer, £39 each). One of these works of art would add greatly to the enjoyment of the daily cup of tea or coffee.
