Jingdezhen Blue and White Porcelain Tea Cup Cold Mountain Monk
Since 2015, Victoria has visited this renowned studio on a regular basis and has been introduced to the most authentic Jingdezhen clay, handcrafted by master level artists incorporating the latest design trends in the porcelain tea ware market. This tea cup is made from authentic Jingdezhen porcelain with a traditional Yuan Rong shape. Yuan Rong means round and harmony in Chinese.
The art work is inspired by the great ancient Chinese monk and poet Han Shan (literally cold mountain in Chinese) from Tang dynasty. The painting shows the monk sitting on a rock under the tree, meditating and observing the mountains. On the other side of the cup is one of Han Shan's poems, which are typically witty and full of Zen philosophy. The cup is a beautiful representation of classic porcelain artwork and serves as an elegant, comfortable to hold vessel. Fine porcelain can enhance the flavor of the tea. All in all, a great addition to your tea ware collectibles.
