These teacups feature hand painted blossoms applied by the studio artist. Each cup is handmade and hand painted, and the details of the painting will vary slightly from cup to cup. The glaze pattern and hue will also differ from glaze to glaze, making each piece entirely unique. Glaze pattern and hue may vary from photos above.
Jiangdouhong is a glaze first developed during the Kangxi Period of the Qing Dynasty. The glaze is named jiangdouhong in Chinese, jiangdou "cowpea" for its texture and hong "red." The studio follows the original recipe and traditional method for applying the glaze, chuiyou 吹釉 "blowing glaze."
Jingdouhong is a difficult glaze to fire properly as its success depends on balancing the amount of CuO in the glaze, firing environment (the glaze is fired in a reduction environment, but with a period where it is exposed to an environment with slightly higher levels of oxygen), and temperature (around 1260C).
These are made using the original, old technique and recipe, which is why they are known as fanggu "in the old style." Click here to learn more about fanggu porcelain.
