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 .
Both teacups are textured with glossy and matte white drippings as well as speckles of various colours which is created by interaction between ash of wood and original unglazed clay in a complicated firing process, giving a significant visual and textural contrast . The appearance of clay moves between various shades of purple , white and green with faint cracks throughout. 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 70ml up to the rim separately. The thin rim of each cup prevents the fingers from heat. There are two patterns of these cups in stock. We recommend referring to the photos for the exact one you are interested in.
