This milky way teacup is hand-thrown and fired by a skilled potter, Wu in Jingdezhen who has engaged in crafting pottery for 27 years since his young apprenticeship. Wu is known for inimitable milky-way patterns on wood-fired works which is a result of his time spent on endless trials. He blends the ceramic or clay himself and develops a unique firing technique so as to extend the range of wood-fired possibilities to the utmost extent, and to create something which is capable of sparkling in the eyes.
Shaped like an egg, the teacup is characterized by a lovely gradation of colours from purple to orange with pronounced cracks throughout resulted from 3 days and nights of wood firing. It is textured with light green drips and milky way speckles on the body, giving a stunning visual and textural contrast.
The cup approximately holds liquid of 110ml separately making it perfect for a solo tea session. Since the rim is pinched a little, for sake of drinking comfortable, we suggest filling the cup with hot tea less than 2/3 volume so as to burn the fingers.
