NEW! Spring Stream: Silver-lined porcelain teacup
Introducing Stream, our latest design, perfect for tea-drinking beginners. Stream is a handmade Kaolin porcelain cup lined with 3 grams of pure 999 silver for the ultimate tea drinking experience.
Why Stream is perfect for beginners
- It's lined with anti-bacterial pure silver, enhancing the taste
- Ideal thickness to give you good temperature-feel.
- Porous Kaolin clay to keep the exterior dry and pristine-looking
- Tactile surface finish for a good grip, even when over-poured
At Sol-Bird Designs, we seek to achieve the perfect balance of aesthetics and practicality by bringing nature into our daily lives - simply and elegantly.
Our teacup was inspired by the eternal beauty of nature.
Transmutation glazing, an amazing centuries-old porcelain firing technique, achieves unique, natural, and beautiful texture under high temperature. Each teacup is different and unique because the texture was formed naturally.
3 grams of pure silver: every silver lining is crafted and put into place by hand.
A perfect match in nature - porcelain & silver
Stream is ergonomic, providing the most comfortable warm curve: a rounded base and stable stance.
The silver lining is antibacterial, keeping the cup clean and healthy forever while enhancing the taste of any tea you choose. Drinking tea with a pure silver teacup will give you a special taste that no other material can replicate.
Silver has the ability to purify and disinfect. A South Korean study published in a 2008 edition of "Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology" found that ionic silver solutions are effective at killing bacteria and Candida albicans fungus in Petri dishes. University of North Texas researcher Dr. Mark Farinha found that solutions of colloidal silver had an antimicrobial effect on in-situ populations of Staphylococcus, Candida, and Pseudomonas.
Drink safe and healthy every day in the most elegant way possible.
A warm cup of tea will always be there to jump-start your morning or calm down your afternoon.
How it is made
Our factory is in Jingdezhen. Jingdezhen has been the center of fine porcelain art, crafting, innovation, and production in China since 557 AD.
China’s most skilled porcelain and pottery masters have perfected their craft in Jingdezhen for the last 1000 years and continue to today.
We used white Kaolin Clay, the essential and distinguishing ingredient of Jingdezhen porcelain, to produce Autumn Stream. Kaolin clay’s high fusion temperature and white burning characteristics make it particularly suitable for the manufacture of porcelain.
Each cup is 100% hand-made.
The copper red glaze delivers a distinctive fiery-orange coloring, just like fallen maple leaves in autumn.
After glazing with different amounts of different glazes, the teacups will be put into the kiln for firing at very high temperatures. During this time, the glazes will move naturally and form a unique pattern. The temperature, amount of glaze, glaze materials, and glazing technique are very important to get right in order to get this look. This unique process is called the transmutation glazing technique.
Healthy, happy, relaxed with every single sip.
A perfect match with tea and cookies
When you are beginning your tea enhancement journey, we recommend paring a black tea with light, buttery tea cookies. It's the perfect way to get started with your new Autumn Stream teacup!
