"Yolk" Tea Cup
Exquisite imperial yellow color glazed porcelain tea cup, 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 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.
The shape is graceful and elegant, the perfect size for enjoying your favorite teas, or sake.
