The two teacups are made by the potter Liu Xinlong from Jingdezhen , the capital of pottery in China. Liu’s works are admired for its 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 which will make pieces come out with pleasing vibrancy or subtlety in unexpected patterns.
Both teacups are formed by throwing unglazed white kaolin clay, then coloured or painted in kiln after reacting with the ash of wood for 3 days and nights. Both cups are speckled at the top of the body and covered by the shade of light orange at the base in common, providing two contrasting visual feelings. One gives gentle and soft surface, but the other presents a cold appearance, turning out like a couple. Please refer to the photos to confirm your option.
Both teacups hold 140ml of liquid respectively. But due to the rim pinched into the inside, it may be too hot to hold the cup with too much tea. So we suggest filling the cup with hot tea less than 2/3 volume. Please pay attention that as both teacups are not glazed on the inside, we recommend not washing them with detergents, but rather water only.
