Those teacups are 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. His 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 .
These two cups are textured with drippings and speckles of various colours which are created by the interaction between ash of wood and original unglazed white clay in a complicated firing process.
Cup A is characterised by the sharp dripping pattern running from the top to the bottom with light green cracks covering both outside and inside. With a gentle gradation of colours from dark to light, the inside is brilliant with brown drips running into the dense green-blueish pool .
The surface of cup B moves between pale purple and white giving gentle and harmonious touch with by faint crackle throughout which will deepen with using. Several drips vertically run down the bottom on the inside, then join into a green pool, presenting a stunning pattern.
Both teacups approximately hold liquid of 60-70ml up to the rim separately. The rim of each cup is pinched out delicately which prevents the fingers from heat. We hereby offer these two cups with rare patterns for you and recommend referring to the photos for the exact one you are interested in.
