This exquisite tea cup by local Atlanta artist Irene Yang blends the eastern esthetics and the western practicality of a mug. The handle makes it easy to use while it is still light and delicate.
The hand painted design on the tea cup is a traditional Chinese representation of plum blossoms. The Prunus tree flowers from mid to late winter and the clear glaze represents the snow that often sprinkles the tree flowers.
The inside of the cup is glazed with pale celadon symbolizing the arrival of Spring. The special zinc-free clear glaze on the outside allows the white clay body and the colors of the tree to shine.
Each piece is made with care and is a unique piece of art.
Crackling will naturally occur as the cup is used to drink tea!
