This tea cup is part of a small collection of ceramics from Wei’s most recent wood-firing at the Shadbolt Centre of Arts in Burnaby, BC.

Wei throws each cup carefully by hand. The pieces are air-dried for 3 days until they are bone dry before trimming and then bisque firing. The cup was wood-fired for 3 days in the kiln, with temperatures maintained at 1400°C. It took around 3 additional days for the wood-fired kiln to slowly drop in temperature, so each piece spent a total of 6 days in the kiln.

A beautiful tea cup with a unique shape that is inspired by wares from the Song Dynasty. It has rich copper tones on the inside with a matte and iridescent finish. The outside has rich mahogany and brown tones.

Please note that crazing and cracklings may develop in the glaze on the inside. We highly recommend rinsing the cup after each use.
