We seek to achieve the perfect balance of aesthetics and practicality by bringing nature into our daily lives - simply and elegantly. Our rosewood teacup project was very successful, raising more than $10,000. We delivered perfect cups to our backers and were recently featured on Touch of Modern with our famous cups.
This time, we bring you silver cups from the porcelain capital of the world: Jingdezhen, China. The porcelain from this region is especially high quality, being fired at 1300 degrees Celsius. It has been the origin of the best quality porcelain since 1004 A.D.

Jingdezhen Porcelain History
Jingdezhen porcelain (Chinese: 景德镇陶瓷) is Chinese porcelain produced in or near Jingdezhen in southern China. From the Ming period, official kilns in Jingdezhen were controlled by the emperor, making imperial porcelain in large quantity for the court and the emperor to give as gifts.
Ancient works from the region are exhibited in many famous museums across the world.

About High-Temperature Jingdezhen Porcelain
After firing at a temperature above 1300 °C, Jingdezhen porcelain has vastly superior color, feel, and sound compared with medium and low-temperature porcelain.
It is also much denser and stronger compared with medium and low-temperature porcelain. it has low water absorption rate, is easy to clean and does not absorb odor, and does not cause surface cracking and water seepage.
Pure silver liner
Discover the enchanting elegance of our teacup, featuring a shimmering silver interior with a crystal-like appearance. Crafted through a unique process where molten silver gently cascades over a textured ceramic surface, this design creates a stunning, grainy effect.
Not only does the .999 fine silver interior look stunning, it's also practical as an oligodynamic (germ-killing) surface. Silver can soften the water and the tea will taste more mellow.
Each cup's glaze will have its own unique personality.
Carefully designed to be comfortable, practical and beautiful.
