Hua Ning Pottery "Peacock Feather on White Clay" Tall Cup 130ml
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
Hua Ning town is near Jiangchuan in Yuxi County of Yunnan. Hua Ning clay pottery has a history that goes back 600 years or more. The famous "yao bian" kiln of Hua Ning is an unforgiving high temperature kiln. In the old days it was said that "10 went in and 3 came out, and 7 broken". Now in modern times the breakage is typically only 20-30% but is high in comparison with Jian Shui kilns (about 15%) and Yixing's famous Dragon Kiln (about 18% breakage rate). The high mineral composition of Hua Ning clay gives it an elegant yet textured look and feel and lends well to tea brewing.
Hua Ning pottery "as yellow as gold, green as emerald, white as suet, blue as precious stones,and purple as Jian Qi's magic sword.
This white clay large and tall cup is entirely hand crafted (not slip-cast) and has a minimal glazing for adornment. The colors remind us of a peacock feather.
