The 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. 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 .
The teacup is 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 dense green pool, presenting a stunning pattern.
The teacup approximately holds liquid of 80ml separately. The thin rim of each cup prevents the fingers from heat.
