Ceramic Pitcher "Spilled Cream"
Made by a small studio in Jingdezhen, this ceramic pitcher is fired at high temperature. The outer finish and inside is glazed with glossy glaze. The pitcher is medium heavy and soft and smooth on touch. Earthy-note colours on this pitcher are disturbed only with super original whitish "spilled cream" like waterfall dripping down from the top to the bottom. The pitcher pours well without any spills and it's wonderful to hold in hand. It also keeps the tea hot longer.
Spilled Cream pitcher: 130 ml, 9 cm width x 11 cm height
About Jindezhen: Jingdezhen is a prefecture-level city, in north-eastern Jiangxi province, China.

Jingdezhen's natural resources include kaolin, coal, manganese, and lime, but it is the kaolin that has made the city famous in China and the world. For over a millennium, its unique kaolin has enabled Jingdezhen to make high-quality porcelain.
