This full set is a celebration of Pengyuan Qinghua studio’s incredible work with hand painting and fine thin porcelain, including a gaiwan, a pitcher and two cups.
Classical Chinese porcelain motifs were all about the deep blue brushwork, with early blue glaze being the best color to survive the intense heat of the kiln. This set evokes that classical style with an elegant hand-painted pomegranate tree.
Pengyuan Qinghua Studio turns all of their own ultra-thin porcelain, vitrified at an extremely high firing temperature for teaware fine enough to amplify tea’s aromatics and allow light to pass through, giving each piece a glowing quality. Striking detail in the brushwork around the branches is matched with a beautiful dream-like quality in the blue of the fruit itself, showing off the artist’s skill.
Each piece is fully vitrified and non-reactive, meaning they fully amplify the tea’s natural aromatics, making the set perfect for serious and contemplative tasting.
