0 out of 5



These teacup are made unglazed, Jianshui zitao purple clay. Although it’s called purple clay, zitao is actually considered a 5 colour clay, consisting of purple, red, white, yellow and green/cyan.

These cups are made from the local red clay that was wood fired for an extended period of several days. This process produces a beautiful dark finish that shifts from a deep dark brown, to blue, black, and back around again, depending on the lighting and angle. The surface also naturally sparkles due to the high iron content in the clay.
