The engrossing texture of thickly applied shino glaze draws the hand to the surface of these tea cups from Taiwanese potter, Zhang Yun Cheng. Mounds and crevices break at random, a map of small trails for fingers to follow. A quick stroke of cobalt oxide highlights the rim of each piece, breaking through the pillows of white glaze, pooling here and there in a concentrated constellation of dark blues.
Pictured is one in a series of similar pieces. Slight variations are possible from piece to piece, a hallmark of hand-made pottery.
Usage and care: Hand-wash only, mild detergent is ok.
