The two 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. 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 .
These two cups are textured with drippings and speckles of various colours which are created by the interaction between ash of wood and original unglazed white clay in a complicated firing process.
Cup A is characterised by the sharp dripping pattern running from the top to the bottom and ending with a pool of green crystal, allowing an imagination that a sharp light breaks through the could and rushes down the earth. With a gentle gradation of colours from dark to light, the surface on the inside is brilliant with light aquamarine drippings.
The surface of cup B moves between pale purple and white giving gentle and harmonious touch. It features a large vitrified drop down the base until turning light aquamarine pool, with crackles and dark speckles round. Covered by faint crackles which will deepen with using, the inside surface has no significant pattern and remains plain white from clay with imperceptible light-green drippings at the top.
Both teacups approximately hold liquid of 100ml separately. The rim of each cup is pinched out delicately which prevents the fingers from heat. We hereby offer these two cups with rare patterns for you and recommend referring to the photos for the exact one you are interested in.
