      The Blooming Lotus Tea Set adopts the lotus petal pattern that was popular in the Song Dynasty as the design theme. The lotus flower represents the highest goodness, rectitude, beauty, exquisiteness and purity. The ancients also compared the nature of the lotus, which is unsullied from the mud, to the nature of a saint, and even praised it as a gentleman among flowers. The lotus became an important decorative pattern in the Song Dynasty because of its diverse shapes and beautiful meanings.

      Lotus, the Gentleman of Flowers

      Lotus, known as the "pure friend among flowers", has been favored by literati since the Sui and Tang Dynasties, and even more so in the Song Dynasty. Zhou Dunyi of the Northern Song Dynasty endowed the lotus with the beauty of personality in his "Shuo on Love of the Lotus". Su Dongpo once expressed his feelings by saying, "The rosy buds are green and natural, especially romantic." In the Song Dynasty, the lotus pattern had its own literati embrace.

      The Same Tea Cup which Su Shi Adored

      The hand-carved patterns are decorated in the shape of lotus petals, with simple patterns and exquisite details. This work has a long lasting charm."Lotus" comes out of the mud without being stained, and cleans the ripples without being evil. The size of this tea cup is moderate, and the rim of the buckle is turned outward, making it easy to hold. The lotus is "incorruptible" and is usually used to describe the character of integrity and honesty. The National Palace Museum in Taipei has a Ding kiln lamp from the Northern Song Dynasty carved with lotus petals, with the word "Yan Zhan" engraved inside the circle foot. Yanzhan is the honorific title given to Su Shi.

      Ding Ware, the Pinnacle of Aesthetics in the Song Dynasty

      Ding Ware is presented as tribute at the Song imperial court. It is among the Five Great Wares (the others being Ru, Jun, Guan and Ge) identified by a 14th-century writer, and is subsequently sought-after by connoisseurs and collectors. Ding Ware originated in Quyang, Hebei Province. Because Quyang belonged to Dingzhou in ancient times, it was named "Ding Ware". Ding Ware zest began in the Sui Dynasty, reached its peak in the Song Dynasty, and was lost to the Yuan Dynasty. Yuan Gongyu lasted for 500 years, and was unique in the world for its decorative techniques such as carving, scratching, and printing. It is known as "white as jade, as ethereal as paper, and as melodious as a chime".

      The Billion-Year-Old Jianci Soil Created the Most Glamorous Ding Ware in the Song Dynasty

      The unique raw material of Ding Ware is Jianci soil of Quyang formed in the Cretaceous period hundreds of millions of years ago. It is resistant to high temperatures, has good plasticity, and is of fine quality. Even if you put it in your mouth and chew it, it will not feel gritty. The secret formula of Ding Ware white glaze is composed of abundant quartz and calcite resources and unique Taoli soil near the Ding Ware site, and has obvious regional characteristics. China Chen's Ding Ceramic products insist on using original ore tires and glazes. There are ninety-nine processes of making Ding Ware. China Chen's Ding Ceramic took official ceramic from of Ding Ware in the Song Dynasty as a specimen and followed the ancient sophisticated techniques, from the selection of raw materials to the drawing, molding, engraving, glazing, and firing of each process. The warmth injected by the craftsmen is also the charm of handmade utensils. In response to the national environmental protection policy, Quyang issued a "Restricted Mining Order" to restrict the procurement and purchase of local minerals. The source of culture is abundant, but natural resources are not inexhaustible.
