The teacup is handmade using the wood-fired kiln-altered glaze technique, and its glaze presents a unique green colour. The phenomenon of crystal formation is caused by a kiln altered in a cup, commonly known as “crystal flowers”.
The varying shades of colour make each cup one-of-a-kind, adding a rugged and beautiful charm to your tea table. Its design features a high foot and a small base, which give it a delicate appearance. The mouth of the cup is designed with a flower shape, making the whole cup look even more entertaining.
- Kiln-fired glaze variations are often unpredictable and can result in a wide range of colours from a single firing.
- The porosity of ceramics varies depending on the materials used, the recipe, the pressure applied, the duration of pressure, the thickness of the body, the firing temperature, and the duration of firing. Generally, the finer the porcelain, the smaller the pores, while the coarser the pottery, the larger the pores.
- Since porcelain is made from clay, the amount of iron spots present in the clay varies depending on the mineral content of the soil. These iron spots are harmless and do not affect the use of the porcelain. Removing them would require the use of chemical materials, which can be damaging to high-quality porcelain.
- Handmade products are not perfect, and each piece can have differences in size, shape, colour, and other aspects.
