This flower cha pan from our friend Wang of Jingdezhen is so nice, someone else made it twice. Wang told me he was dismayed to see not long after developing this concept that they were mass producing it 🤣 So, you can find cheap and quite frankly ugly versions of this shape or have a close look and admire the craftsmanship of Wang's work.

Wang utilizes plant ashes to create a traditional "ash glaze." It's one of the earliest materials humans used to coat ceramics and has certain important qualities that can't be replaced. The effects of ash glaze can vary depending on where the plant ashes come from and the plants used. This is why it's difficult to replicate the exact glaze color and surface when trying to recreate ancient ash glaze pottery.

It is a common misconception that “all porcelain is basically the same” which I hear repeated a lot. While making no claims of being an expert, it might be more appropriate to say “When porcelain vessels are used for tea, it can be expected to have a neutral effect on the taste”.

In truth, China is a vast country where different regions have developed their own porcelain styles. It can involve complex techniques such as hand-painting, underglaze and overglaze decoration, carving, and various firing methods. Glazing techniques also vary, resulting in different textures and finishes.

Porcelain can vary greatly, from mass-produced pieces to exquisite works of art. Rarer pieces that exhibit exceptional craftsmanship, historical significance, or unique features can be highly sought after by collectors and museums. I myself have several dirt cheap gaiwans that work just fine. On the other hand, it is an honor to hold such finely crafted work such as Wang's.

 

 I am proud to be able to share with you just a small selection of Wang's work; What we have here is only what has been sent to us for the time being so if you like his style and are interested to see what else is in his catalog, shoot us a pm.
