Special Glaze Teacup series: Ru Ware Teal Blue
Magnolia shape teacup with classic Ru ware ( aka Ruyao ) style celadon glaze on the inside and teal blue overglaze on the outside.
Ru ware style is typified with very tiny cracks that cover the surface rather like an irregular spiderweb but not quite visible when the piece of ware is new. Upon repeated usage, tea becomes the patina agent that gives colour to the cracks to give you the similar visual effects on ancient pieces that you can see in museums. There are new products with imitation aged effects made with a different colour glaze on the cracks. However, they are not genuine like these in our Ru ware collection in this Special Glaze Teacup series.
This is a handmade item. Each piece does vary slightly in size, shape and the colour and pattern of the glaze.
