Another classic tea cup shape gets re-interpreted here by Bai Mu Quan’s workshop. We chose to have this design moulded to ensure consistency in shape when considering a set of them. Nevertheless, this is far from being a mass-produced item as these cups are moulded one by one and corrected individually by an apprentice before being handed over to Master Quan for firing and glazing. This lower flared cup design becomes a true canvas to the artistry of Bai Mu Quan’s master glazing skills. The half-moon shape is particularly appealing when one considers the mesmerizing patterns that form on the inside of the cup. This is further exemplified by the dazzling Tianmu 天目 (called Tenmoku in Japan) black hare’s fur glaze executed with vibrant warm ochre, brown and black accents. These cups match beautifully any darker clay pots and accessories in our clay collection. Like all the work featured in our Handcrafted section, each item is made one by one and is signed the artist. Handmade in Taiwan.
