Craftsmanship is very important to us: it is what distinguishes our high end and unique brand from the many cheap replicas you can find on the market. It is the high quality of our craftsman work that makes each piece of Tenmoku pottery so special.

Our artisan craftsman train for years to create stunning pieces that you can both use in your everyday life and display as works of art. Each Tenmokus piece is lovingly created by hand, ensuring that each piece is truly unique.

What Is a Tenmoku Teacup?

We are often asked, what is a Jianzhan Tenmoku Teacup? The answer is twofold: what makes these tea cups special is both their unique shape and their specialist glaze. Juanzhan Tenmoku tea cups are bowl shaped, but with a wide brim that allows the tea to stew and cool perfectly. They are glazed at a very high heat using a glaze with a high iron content, which creates a blackened and distinctively beautiful pattern that is unique only to Jianzhan Tenmoku pottery.

Whilst the glaze is always dark, Jianzhan Tenmoku pottery can be produced in a wide range of colours. The most traditional shades are brown and dark blue, but modern sets are also produced in shades of green, red, orange and even yellow. True tea affictionados believe that the mysterious dark glaze of the Jianzhan Tenmoku tea set is perfectly placed to highlight the light colour of the tea, showing it off in the best possible way.
