These faircups are handmade by an accomplished potter Mai Zibin, whose crafts are characterised by silver glazing and refined details. Based in Jingdezhen, Mai has been devoted his time to breaking the rules of traditional crafting and developed a great trade-off between tradition and contemporary art. Another point to appreciate his work is how seriously he treats the details of potteries like the thickness of teapot or cups, a pleasure to hold the teapots etc, which is aimed at improving the user experience. Thanks to the unique and inimitable crafting, Mai has had personal exhibitions in different cities around China so far.
Inspired by a shabby wall near the potter’s studio, the potter designed and created a series of pieces called “Time” including those fair cups. Those faircups feature a mottled effect of black or red on the silver glaze which involves a complicated process to make, providing contemporary enhancement and visual contrast. Each faircup feels uneven but soft in the hand. The inside is glazed with a patch of dark spots where the cracks will deepen through regular use.
Each fair cup holds roughly 250ml of 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 those faircups. There are two colors available, black and red. We advise referring to the photos and confirm your selection.
