Wood Fired Jianshui Zitao Tea Cup 90ml :: FREE SHIPPING
This wood fired tea cup is fully handmade. This cup is a work of art! This cup was single fired and is unglazed. The floral pattern and Chinese characters were carved out and inlaid with different colors of clay. The wood firing was done over the course of 5 days. The patterns you see are a result of the shifting heat and smoke from the pine wood in the kiln. Additionally a glaze gathers as melting pitch drips from the ceiling of the kiln on to the surface.
The wood firing process is unreliable and most pieces will fail in the kiln. The pieces that survive have increased value.
This is a true clay which lacks any sand. The natural minerals in the clay will enhance the flavor of your tea. Jianshui is in Yunnan, and the clay used in these cups comes from the same mountains that grow puerh tea trees. We appreciate that connection. We blogged about this unique town here.
This tea cup hold 90ml. It measures 6cm Wide (2.4”) x 6.5cm Tall (2.7”). We only have this one cup for sale.
