Description

With its wide opening and shallow depth design, this tea cup is ideal for brewing pu-erh and black tea. It is made of white porcelain and features a brown band (transmutation glaze) around the rim that adds 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 have high appreciation and collection value.

Furnace Transmutation
  • 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.
