Cup from Mr. Lin | Wo Bei
Taiwanese potter Lin Jianhong specializes in the creation of velvety smooth celadon glazes, like the one wrapping this cup.
Mr. Lin uses a glaze named Ru Yao, a type of celadon developed during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). His pieces are fired in a gas kiln reaching temperatures around 1250° Celsius, giving them this unique look.
Under their thick light blue coat, little spots of “raw” clay make a pleasing contrast to both eyes and fingers.
