Zero Japan collection @ SHANTEO® Tea Boutique.

Zero Japan products are made of the finest porcelain quality clay. A lot of handwork is involved in the process, from moulding to glazing the products. The whole process including the firing in the kiln takes several days. The biscuit firing or first firing at a lower temperature is to dry the clay, after which the glaze is applied manually. The second firing at a very high temperature for around 18 hours is to make the product waterproof and vitrify the glaze. The right temperature will bring out a brilliant, shiny glaze and beautiful colour.

The Japanese designer Koji Inoue designed the Zero Japan products with the following three concepts in mind: “highly functional”, “great to touch” and “a pleasure to the eye”.

Zero Japan's teacups are hand made in the Mino region of Japan. This region is known for its rich pottery history: high-quality traditional pottery has been made in this region for more than 1300 years. The clean quality clay found in this region forms the basis of the success. Function, shape, and colour are expressed in the Zero Japan products: the cups are a feast for the eyes and are also functional in use. Each of these teacups is hand made, and guarantees top quality that can be used at home, at the office or in the catering industry.

Antique gold glaze teacups cannot be washed in the dishwasher and cannot be used in a microwave. The glaze will become black when it comes into contact with strong soap or acid, such as lemon juice.
