Silver Lotus Porcelain Tea Cup
Dehua (德化), Quanzhou, Fujian
Pottery and porcelain
3.7" W x 1.9" H (9.5cm x 5cm)
120ml (4oz) (with liquid filled)
A lotus flower is inlaid at the bottom as an ornament and to add joy to your tea tasting.
This tea cup is unique with its brilliant color and drippy glaze. A silver lotus flower is hand-inlaid inside of the bottom. It will turn golden after encountering tea liquid, which also adds ornamental value during our tea tasting time.
In addition, due to the special kind of glaze, cracks may form in the cup during the firing process. This is similar to the "Kai Pian" in Ge Yao and Ru Yao tea wares, which is a normal phenomenon. Thanks to this, each cup is distinctive.
The occurrence of 窑变, or furnace transmutation, is a phenomenon that occurs throughout the manufacturing process of some ceramics. It results in unpredictable, uncontrolled color changes along porcelain surfaces caused by variations in temperature inside the kiln. This is part of why a uniform glaze can still result in many unpredictable and beautiful colors, manifesting the secrets of ancient oriental ceramic arts.
Located in Fujian province, Dehua County is the famous porcelain and ceramic origin and an important base for exporting porcelain in China. With over thousand-year history, Dehua porcelain is characterized by its elegant design, excellent craft, hard texture and watery white appearance.
