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 degrees Celsius. 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.
This beautiful tea cup emerged from the kiln with rich terracotta and brown hues. It has an elegant and simple shape that fits perfectly in the hands. A precious beauty that will enhance your daily tea ritual.
Each tea cup is one-of-a-kind.
Please note that crazing and cracklings will develop in the glaze on the inside. We highly recommend rinsing the cup after each use.
