Timelessly elegant cup showcasing classic thin Jingdezhen porcelain.

This is a sublime blue/celadon porcelain cup from Jingdezhen, handcrafted to make the porcelain very thin, giving the cup a glowing character whenever it catches the light.

Producing teaware this thin has a big failure rate with cups breaking during sculpting or firing. The light colour also means that any little specks which come from the kiln are easily seen and the cups have to be thrown away. The joy of pouring tea into such light and thin cups is unparalleled in elegance.

The shape of this cup subtle yet striking - seemingly straight edged but with a slight curve discernible in the hands and the mouth. It is delight to hold with its featherlight weight and perfectly smooth finish. The archetype of Jingdezhen porcelain.
