This Jun Kiln style cup is slightly larger than the usual tea cup, suitable for personal use or for ample pours shared between two friends.
The striking dappled blue-on-black pattern of the thick glaze is made by painting multiple layers of glaze and using many natural metal oxide pigments to make different layered colors. The ceramic is fired at a very high temperature that is very carefully controlled to let the glaze gently flow down the sides of the cup like a stream of water, creating dense feathered visuals.
Jun style porcelain was created in the Song Huizong period of the Song Dynasty in China (1082) and was produced in Yuzhou City, Henan Province.
