Bamboo Weaving on High Temperature Porcelain
SHANG XIA’s bamboo weaving tea ware is a combination of two craftsmanship – bamboo weaving and high temperature porcelain, reflecting the balance of SHANG and XIA. Porcelain are fired at 1300℃, covered in a delicate glaze revealing this true work of art. Bamboo weaving is an ancient craft, where traditional craftsmen used only a basic weave and single strips. SHANG XIA has developed a new technique, introducing double warp and double weft strips. This weaving technique entirely creates a modern new effect: a subtle, textured sheet, woven with the thinnest bamboo strips ever cut, each less than half a millimeter thick. The excellence of the craftsmanship is a real treasure to behold and cherish.
