Eggshell Porcelain
Thin as cicada wings, light as clouds, eggshell porcelain is 0.5-1 mm thick, the technique has been widely spread since the Ming Dynasty. Eggshell porcelain exerts extremely high requirements on production: "thin" and "transparent" are at the core of beauty, the cicada-wing-like wall is shaped after manual trimming for more than 100 times. Distinct from the bright and complex patterns on traditional eggshell porcelain, SHANGXIA only takes the shape of eggshell porcelain while making it whiter, bigger and purer. Given its large size and dedicate wall, the firing process is particularly hard with only 1% production yield.
