This tea set was handmade by Jingdezhen Master Lee ShanMing. He has devoted himself to ru kiln products for over thirty years. His signature is on the bottom of the pot and reads "Shan" 善. "Shan" is the middle character of the artist's name, it means kindness.
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.
This ancient pottery technique known as Ru Kiln (Ruyao) originated during the Song dynasty. It is one of the finest quality traditional Chinese crafts on the market.
