About this piece:
An unique porcelain wood fired tenmoku style cup. I like the inner upper brown edge, filling the cup where the inner part is white makes a nice effect. This cup colouring has outside one part going to green and blue shades. Inside edge of brown going to caramel and then greenish tones.
Tenmoku style glaze is applied to a porcelain slip. Ten moku literally ‘Heaven’s Eye’ temple in China where iron glazed tea cups were used/originate. These (mostly) cups made fame in second half of 14th century Japan.
Myself I like a lot these natural brown coloured ceramics that have for me a kind of soft and warm touch and are pleasure to drink old tea.
