Dai-minority traditional teaware

张老师 Zhang Laoshi's work

Zhang Laoshi's workshop is a real institution in Jinghong, Xishuangbanna; it is an ample courtyard with multiple traditional Dai buildings, hosting enough space for her work, for her kilns - including a Dragon kiln - , her beloved students, and of course an off-limits space where she develops new ideas.
There is also a small museum which gathers the pieces she has inherited by her family since five generations of Dai pottery masters in Banna.
Whereas Qiu Laoshi is the Dai tradition innovator, Ms. Zhang is the keeper of the original tradition and design, honed by her contemporary studies and a life of practice.

The soil she uses is sourced locally from Xishuangbanna, between the wild forests of Mengsong, Laobanzhang, and Yiwu. Each of her creations is a delicate and sincere expression of the Yunnan landscape, and all pieces bear her unique signature.

Absolute Art

Super pleased with this purchase, so much that I've made my own small Dai collection of cups alongside "Sandstorm" and "Waterfall"! Their consistency, their lightness and their preciousness make every of my small tea breaks an aesthetic experience that I've missed so much lately!
Please, give all my highest thanks to the Ceramist Master Zhang Laoshi, her teacups are a joy for the soul, and I cannot wait to see more of her craft in the future for your Shop.

Dear Sara, thank you for your kind and warm-hearted review! We like Zhang's work and personality, and the way she continuously renew herself.
We have to go visit her shortly, and surely we will bring your words! Thanks a lot.

Great cup for puerh

I love the feel and look of this cup so much. It reminds of Yin and Yang, heaven and earth. We find humanity in the tea we pour into it. Connecting us back to source and harmony. Constantly moving. It's smooth feel allows the tea to nourish our essence as we drink from it.

Dear Beto, thank you so much for your poetic and passionate review: we love the work of this artist, so connected with her land, culture, and technique: she was born into it, and she brought it in her own present time. We will forward her your words.

Earthly feeling

Gorgeous colors, a delicate yet solid cup with an earthly feeling. Perfect for my Pu'er tea.

Dear Cecilia, thanks for your review: we will forward your words to the artist, she deserves it! We often visit her, and we periodically release new series of her work, that keeps changing together with her artistic research.
