This set of teacups are made by Hu Ke in Jingdezhen, an important pottery centre in China. Hu used to be a media worker in his early career. However, with a passion about nature and countryside life growing gradually, Hu made up his mind to quit the well-developed media work and put his root in Jingdezhen to devote himself into wood firing where he is able to feel the truth of nature and life.
Those teacups are textured with the concentric circles across the body, giving it a stylish appearance. Being fired for 3 days and nights in the kiln, both cups are stunning with an interplay between metallic brown and brilliant purple, manifesting a nice visual and textural contrast. The greenish-yellow cracks significantly light up the whole cup, providing an aesthetics enhancement. The inside features brown drips with a speckled effect at the bottom.
Each teacup holds approximately 70ml liquid up to the rim with a thick wall which helps to retain the heat. Due to the one-of-a-kind result of the wood firing, the appearances of both cups vary slightly different.
