Hi Newbie, Welcome to the forum. It's too much fun here. I could guess how to cut tea cups, but the people over at the Stained Glass and Mosaics Forum probably KNOW how to cut them. Linda

The best way I've found is with a tile saw.
here are some i've done

I have a friend who scores them with a glass cutter and then snips with tile snips. But it's hit and miss. Sometimes she destroys the cup.

Your much better off with a small wet saw as mentioned before.
I have tried using nippers and sometimes the magic works and sometimes it doesn't.
