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 .
Made of unglazed white ceramic, the surface of each cup turns brilliant and glossy after interaction with the ash of wood in a complicated firing process. Both teacups are textured with milky way speckles around the body, providing a lovely interplay of various colours like pale purple, white, bluish-purple and so on with pronounced faint crackles around the body. Stunning with a crackled green pool at the bottom, the inside gradates from dark purple to white with multiple faint crackles which will deepen with using.
Both teacups approximately hold liquid of 70ml 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.
