The teacup is made by the potter Liu Xinlong from Jingdezhen, the capital of pottery in China. Liu’s works are admired for their spectacular and surprising color as a result of a decade spent in wood firing. He is aimed to discover a wide array of kiln changes that will make pieces come out with pleasing vibrancy or subtlety in unexpected patterns.
The teacup features an elegant gradation of color from grey to red with metallic sheen on the inside and outside after 3 days and nights wood firing, giving an impression of a rainbow. The cup offers a pleasure to hold and fit the hands well. If you are looking for one that is both understated and elegant, then you are in the right place.
The teacup approximately holds liquid 75ml up to the rim individually. The rim is pinched out slightly, allowing pleasure to hold and preventing the hand from heat.
