We are also sending out a coupon to everyone else who participated in our contest – check your Instagram inboxes!
And finally, here are our personal tea cups. My red ruyao cup was the cup that originally attracted us to the work of Lee Shanming. He rarely makes red ruyao because of the high failure rate, making this cup even more special to me. Siyan’s Jilan cup was given to her as a gift from our partner studio in Jingdezhen when we first began our business with them. The two characters 初心 chu xin mean “original heart” which can also be translated as “first intentions,” a reminder never to forget your original intentions.
