This timeless traditional tea cup has been masterfully re-interpreted by our in-house ceramicist, Lesley Hurley. Each cup we feature from Lesley's collection has been individually hand crafted. There is no moulding involved. Cups may vary slightly in size and thickness but this only means that each piece is unique and has its individual soul. This being said, their completion is nonetheless flawless and well-balanced, with much thought and preparation dedicated to the selection of clay body and glaze. Most importantly, both must truly enhance and support the tea. This "Satin" glaze is one of our own creations, and has developed a beautiful crystalline appearance that shimmers in natural sunlight. Due to many varying considerations, each piece a one off with different flashes colour ranging from pastel blue, deep turquoise, shades of peach and rarely overloading to charcoal. This tea cup is highly recommended for Oolong lovers, as porcelain conducts heat and accentuates both flavour and aroma.
