The teacup is made by the soda firing expert, Mupu studio (check here to learn about Mupu).
The teacup stands out by blue and transparent spots embellished across the off-white body as if some sapphires are inlayed into the surface, resulted from the reaction between soda and clay during process of firing, being aesthetically beautiful in appearance. The teacup has several facets cut off the wet cup, that go down diagonally from left to right across the cup. With the mottled effect of transparent color, the teacup is textured with uneven bumps that provide a textural contrast. The inside surface is vitrified with small inclusions within the clay, but has a pleasure to touch.
The soda-firing teacup holds approximately 145ml of liquid making it ideal for intimate tea session without the company of a fair cup if the teapot used is normal size (100ml-150ml). Pinched out delicately, the rim has lovely wave outline, allowing a pleasure to hold and preventing the hand from heat, while the thick wall provides good heat preservation quality.
