This cup is part of the Shan Collection Series, the stamp is at the bottom. This Series is a special collection from Shan Kiln Ruyao Studio. Both the body and glaze use special formulas which make the material very difficult to fire properly. As a result the scrap rate during firing is quite high and there is a very limited quantity - no more than 100 in a year, which is around 25 each season - in the market. Because of the limited availability we do accept a limited number pre-orders for this series.
Shan Kiln ruyao has a glow and a depth that are a result of the ruyao glaze recipes of the studio. When firing the pottery, and as the body expands, crazing appears on the surface of the glaze. These 开片 or "opening cracks," are found on all ruyao and will expand on the glaze with use. They give each piece its unique character.
These are handmade by Master Lee ShanMing 李善明. He has devoted himself to ru kiln products for nearly two decades.
All pieces are delivered in a gift box.
