Teacup丨 Heart Sutra
This teacup is made using the Ru Ware technique, one of five main styles developed in the Song Dynasty (960-1279). This results in cracks forming naturally on the glazed surface (see close-up) during the firing process. These cracks cause the colour of this type of porcelain to change subtly after being exposed to tea over a long period of time. This teacup is painted with the Buddhist scripture know as the 'Heart Sutra', which can also be translated as 'The Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom'.
