The deer-embossed wood-fired teacup is handmade in Dehua, China. Made of clay locally dug by the potter, the teacup is attached with a deer hand engraved from a white ceramic slab before twice firing. Then it is colored differently over all by the ash for three days and nights depending on where in the kiln it was positioned. The various degrees of kiln changes and twice firing make it an appearance which moves between black and orange like the sky at sunset, surprisingly depicting a tranquil scene that a deer is on its way home at sunset. The overall wood-firing result leaves nothing to wish for.
The teacup holds approximately 100 ml of liquidup to the rim , making it ideal for an intimate tea session without the company of a fair cup if the teapot used is normal size (100ml-150ml). With a thick wall, the teacup provides good heat preservation quality.
