Handwritten Calligraphy Tea Cup
Chaozhou, Guangdong Province, China
2.8 inches (7cm)
0.9 inch (2.4cm)
This handwritten calligraphy tea cup with unique rim design of applying transmutation glaze technique.
The tea cup is made of white porcelain and features a brown band (transmutation glaze) around the rim that leads elegance and beauty. The white, smooth surface with brown rim is beautiful to look at and easy to clean. The four Chinese characters (“静”,“禅”,“悟”,“道”) at the bottom of each cup in graceful style handwritten separately by Chinese calligrapher collectively embody the decorative expression of the “peaceful inner world” – a kind of calm, subtle and introverted Chinese cultural implication. All of them are of high appreciation and collection value.
The occurrence of 窑变 "furnace transmutation" is probably simply an accidental event in the ceramic manufacturing process, and also probably the result of some unpredictable and uncontrolled color changes happened on porcelain surface caused by temperature variations inside the kiln. No wonder people say one original glazing color can create many unpredictable beautiful colors, which manifest the secret of ancient oriental ceramic art.
