Oil Spot Dian Cha Ceremony Jian Zhan Tea Bowl

Oil Spot Dian Cha Ceremony Jian Zhan Tea Bowl


Crafted By Lin Xi

This massive Jian Zhan tea bowl was hand-thrown and hand-fired by Master Lin Xi, and specifically designed with its high-sloping sides and flared lip for Dian Cha ceremony, whisking matcha while slowly adding water to form a high foam accentuated by the deep dark Jian Zhan firing. Indeed, the earliest Jian Zhan tea bowls were for appreciating whisked tea. The large size is also perfect for adding tea leaves and water and sipping right out of the bowl, topping it off throughout the day while watching the leaves unfurl. This bowl was made with the same Shui Ji clay and natural mineral glazing used by Song Dynasty potters for a highly traditional You Di or oil spot effect. This bowl is impressed with Master Lin Xi’s seal on the foot and comes in a gift box with Lin Xi’s signed collectors certificate.
