Celadon Tea Cup
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 delicate crackled celadon glaze in a faint pastel green color tone. The inside is a slightly matte yellow-green color tone and has a "kiln kiss". The porcelain clay body is thin, and the elegant shape is perfect for enjoying your tea from.
Each tea cup is unique and one-of-one pieces.
⌀: 65 mm
H: 38 mm
Please note that the glaze on the inside of the cup is a crackled celadon glaze and due to the light color, it might absorb the color of the tea that is in the cup. We highly recommend rinsing the cup after each use. The cup will develop a patina on the inside glaze from repeated use.
