Mini "Sky Blue"
Exquisite sky blue color-glazed porcelain mini gaiwan made by Rushi Studio in Jingdezhen, China.
Rushi Studio is known for formulating its own monochrome colored glazes, using more than ten kinds of natural ore, copper and cobalt, combined in different compositions.
Each gaiwan and tea cup is hand thrown on the potter’s wheel. The glazes are applied by hand to the ceramic body both on the interior and exterior, and fired in the kiln at high temperatures exceeding 1300°C.
The high temperature firing creates beautiful vivid colors with a piercing clarity, resembling natural gemstones. The porcelain is thin, delicate and have a beautiful translucency when placed under light.
This is a mini gaiwan, holding only 35ml of water, ideal for a one-person tea session.
