Those fair cups are made by the soda firing expert, Mupu studio (check here to learn about Mupu).
A Fair cup usually plays an important role in gongfu tea (cha) ceremony which is called “Gong Bei” or “Gong Dao Bei” in Mandarin. It is used to share tea with all participants at the same serving generally during process of gongfu tea (cha) ceremony, where the tea is poured from a teapot into a fair up, then from there into several smaller teacups.
Made of rough brown clay, each fair cup offers a grainy touch with uneven bumps around the body. It features the glossy and crackled brown-green drips around the spout, simply like cinder of a candle, providing a great textural and visual contrast between the drips and the clay. It is stunning with a dense green bottom on the inside where the ash glaze pools together during the firing.
Each fair cup holds roughly 170ml-180 liquid. As the thin rim is pinched out slightly, it allows pleasure to hold and prevent the hand from heat. With no complaint, here we are confident that you will never ever go wrong with the pouring of any fair cup made by Mupu. Due to the nature of woodfired pieces, both fair cups appear different. We advise referring the photos and confirm your selection.
