About the Product:
This porcelain rice cup is made with an ancient Chinese technique called rice grain, chicco di riso in Italian. Rice-grain porcelain is a specialized type of ceramic process developed by Chinese potters 700 years ago. During moulding, each dish is punctured with a sharp object, usually in the shape of a tiny grain of rice, and decorated for a translucent feel. The end result is often remarked as "ceramic embroidery".
Made from the highest quality porcelain, Chicco di Riso has a modern simple shape and a total white luxurious look. The contrast between glazed and unglazed finishes creates a brilliant sheen which is unparalleled and exclusive. The Chicco di Riso rice cup is an essential, but absolutely classy.
