A rounded ceramic cup from Jun Kiln with a light blue Tian Qing glaze. The pale gray-blue-green glaze is thick but semi-translucent, letting warm brown clay underneath show at the edges of the cup and handle. This distinctive glaze color is known as Ru Yao Tian Qing. This was the favorite color of the Song Dynasty emperor Song Huizhong. Its pale semi-translucence resembles the ethereal color of the sky right after rain, just before the sun shines through the dispersing clouds. The cup’s handle makes it excellent for enjoying a large personal cup of tea and keeping it hot while protecting your hand. Capacity 260 mL.
