Jingdezhen Deep Red Glazed Porcelain Jihong Gaiwan Set Hand-crafted
Enjoy your tea in style with this deep red glaze porcelain gaiwan, hand-crafted from a respected studio in Jingdezhen, the porcelain capital of the world. This beloved traditional deep red glaze called Ji Hong (祭红), is one type of Jingdezhen's traditional single-color glazing styles. This gaiwan used the local authentic glazing material which results in a thick and deep glaze, with a more saturated color and a naturally radiant finish. Not all red glaze porcelain wares are created equal. There are many mass-produced or lower-cost thinly layered red glaze teaware on the market made of chemical glazing materials. One needs to be especially discerning when choosing these types of teaware.
Red is a favorite color in Chinese tradition as it represents happiness, warmth and prosperity. This gaiwan set stands out at any tea table and makes your tea life more enjoyable.
