Yellow Bamboo Tea Cup
|Inside||Yellow bamboo glaze
|Outside||Yellow bamboo glaze
This beautiful tea cup is part of a small collection of ceramics from Wei’s most recent soda-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 degrees Celsius. It took 3 additional days for the wood-fired kiln to slowly drop in temperature. Each piece spent a total of 6 days in the kiln.
The cup has a beautiful and understated yellow glaze on both the inside and outside. It is thin and boasts an elegant shape. Fitting perfectly in the hand and on the lips for drinking tea.
Each tea cup is unique and one-of-one pieces.
