Lily of the Valley I
Handmade, porcelain, gas fired, tianbai "sweet white" glaze
An exquisite tea cup in fine white porcelain and a delicate shiny "sweet white" glaze, inspired by the beauty of lily of the valley flowers.
Reminiscent of the silhouette of a flower, this petite tea cup was painstakingly shaped to perfectly fit in your hands and the curve of your lips. The cup's tall and slim form accentuate the experience of enjoying aromas and fragrances of tea.
A precious ornament that will enhance the experience of your cherished daily rituals.
About the artist
Nandao Studio is a small boutique studio in Jingdezhen Prefecture that is dedicated to the crafting and exploration of fine white porcelain in everyday wares.
The building principle of Nandao Studio is the exploration in beauty of forms and subtleties of the natural world—trees, flowers, leaves. Ma Li, the passionate ceramicist who founded Nandao Studio in 2016, aims to express the beauty of nature through his ceramics and everyday wares. “I think the beauty of nature's creations lie in the forms, symmetry, arrangement, and the subtle changes in lines. They are full of wisdom. We should respect nature and learn from it.”
He hopes his ceramic pieces can provide a vehicle for people to immerse themselves in the subtle beauty of nature in daily life.
