This handmade celadon chicken heart cup features a beautiful green glaze that is created through the kiln-altered baking process. During this process, the temperature and atmosphere inside the kiln are carefully controlled to produce variations in colour and texture on the surface of the pottery.
The resulting green glaze on this cup is a stunning example of the unique and unpredictable effects that can be achieved through this ancient technique. The subtle variations in shade and texture give the cup a natural and organic feel, and the delicate chicken heart shape adds a touch of whimsy and charm.
Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this cup is entirely handmade and one-of-a-kind. Its smooth, rounded shape feels comfortable in the hand, and the rich, green glaze adds depth and dimension to the surface.
- 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.
