Crafted By Yi Fang Long Yao Electric Kiln
Yi Fang Long Yao keeps several electric kilns to continue their research into firing temperatures and techniques as they work to revive Song Dynasty wood-firing techniques. This stunning teacup is a perfect example of the workshop’s technical mastery in recreating the ancient hare’s fur glaze pattern. The workshop uses the same clay and glazing materials native to Shui Ji that would have been used by Song Dynasty potters, but since it was fired in an electric kiln, the workshop is able to get more control and more consistent results. Jian Zhan absorbs tea oils over time and tends to smooth out teas, bringing out their sweetness while evening out texture.
