These exquisite porcelain cups are designed and handmade by a contemporary ceramicist in Jingdezhen, the renowned porcelain capital of China.
Using a traditional multiple-step firing process, ceramicists coat the inside and outside with contrasting metal finishes.
The outside of the cup is coated and fired in a rich, metal-based glaze, resulting in a deep volcanic pattern. The inside is coated with pure silver several times, resulting in a magical spun silver effect. Over time, silver oxidizes and the patina of the cup's silver coating grows warmer in tone.
These stunning cups are the perfect addition to any tea and coffee aficionados' home. In a set of four, they make an impressive dining gift.
The cup is 6.8cm in diameter at its widest and is 7.4cm high.
