Type: mutton jade porcelain
Origin: De Hua, Fujian
De Hua produces softer clay with lower iron and higher potassium content. This results in a glaze that is creamy white and smooth, sturdy yet translucent.
The firing of mutton jade porcelain is delicate work. The low yield demonstrates the preciousness and complicated process mutton jade porcelain requires. Mutton jade porcelain was the chosen tribute in the Tang Empire. The craftsmanship reaches its peak during the Qing Dynasty and its beauty is still sought after today.
This works as an everyday gaiwan, suitable for all teas.
