Angel's Comment:

The bright and pure white color of this Gaiwan truly reflects the color of tea liquid, which helps you control the proper brewing time.

Made of white porcelain, this gaiwan has a pure, translucent glaze and is decorated with hand-painted double blue lines. Although it looks simple, painting two lines like this requires immense skill and control: they must be clearly and uniformly painted, without any hint or sign of the beginning and ending. Furthermore, this gaiwan has a lovely surface luster: held up to bright backlighting, it can be seen that the piece is slightly translucent.



White porcelain - As a traditional type of Chinese porcelain among celadon (青瓷), blue and white (青花瓷), and painted porcelain (彩瓷), white porcelain (白瓷) has a low iron content and is covered in a clean, transparent glaze. Unlike painted porcelain, it has neither patterns nor a colorful appearance, instead maintaining its pure, bright white natural color.


Double lines - Known as xuán wén (玄纹), the double-line style is one of the most classic lined ornamentations in Chinese ceramic art. It stands with the lotus, dragon, and phoenix patterns as the most common and best-known. While looking simple, these hand-painted lines require expert craftsmanship and a steady hand to properly paint the straight, parallel lines.



Located in Fujian province, Dehua County enjoys great reputation for ceramic and porcelain production. White porcelain made from Dehua has bright and pure white color with great light transmission. The ivory white (象牙白) and Chinese white (中国白) have been well known both in home and abroad since Ming and Qing dynasty. He Zongchao, Lin Chaojing and Zhang Shoushan, etc were the most famous ceramic artists in Ming dynasty.
