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. He 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.
Being fired for 3 days and nights in the kiln, the unglazed white teacup turns out a complex surface with micro crackles across the body , moving between grey and brown with subtle orange pockmarks running round the cup, manifesting a nice visual and textural contrast. The inside features green drips over the orange, providing aesthetic enhancement for the overall cup.
The cup approximately holds liquid of 100ml separately making it perfect for a solo tea session. The rim of each cup is pinched out delicately which prevents the fingers from heat. If you are looking a teacup not only with stylish appearance but also offering an extreme pleasure to hold, then you are in the right place.
