Duh! I just realized they are not tea cups. Guess you don't need a tea pot after all.

Thanks for your kind comments.

The process of making is applying a thin layer of transparent urushi lacquer which is sprinkled with finest iron powder.Then hardened 24 hours. This process is repeated around 20 times. The iron coat is then double as thick as the eggshell itself. Finally there is much grinding and polishing work to be done. The eggs are then cut with a fine saw. Inside and outside are rubbed with transparent urushi lacquer and removed fully then being hardened for 24hours. This process is also repeated several times until the surfaces are sealed. I am now working on projects with goos eggs and Ostrich eggs.

Cheers,

Martin

Amazing and super cool, Martin. This is definitely one of the “look at what this guy can do” posts that I show others.

are the eggs painted whole first and then cut?

what do you use for grinding the coated shells? are they as fragile/delicate as they appear?

I cut them with a small cutting wheel after polishing and then ground the edges on a grinding machine. The urushi Iron coat is quite durable but the cup is still fragile. If dropped, it will fall in pieces like porcelain
