Those teacups are made by Hu Ke in Jingdezhen, an important pottery center in China. Hu used to be a media worker in his early career. However, with a passion about the nature and countryside life growing gradually, Hu made up his mind to quit the well-developed media work and put his root in Jingdezhen for studying wood firing where he is able to feel the truth of nature and life.Hu is aimed to develop a line of mini teapots for a small tea ceremony as a teapot suiting for single-person brewing plays an important role during his daily meditation.
Made of white gaolin clay, those teacups are colored by the ash and fire after being fired over 1300℃ for 3 days and nights in the kiln. They stand out by multiple brown drips with faint cracks running from the top to the bottom. Both cups are also stunning with the lovely gradation of colors from brown to white, being aesthetically beautiful in color assortment.
Each teacup holds 150ml of liquid up to the rim. Even though the rim is thin, we still recommend filling the cup with hot tea at less than 2/3 volume as the rim is pinched in. Otherwise, full filling may be too hot to hold the teacup.
