Glazed stoneware・Iron oxide・5 day wood-fired
This small fleck teapot by ceramicist Liao Guo Hua features iron oxide particles embedded in the stoneware clay body. The piece is hand-formed, glazed on both exterior and interior, then fired in a wood-kiln for 5 days.
What emerges reveals the transformative effect of wood-firing: dark gray flecks express through the glaze, appearing like charcoal freckles on paper. The partial exterior glaze leaves the raw clay exposed at the base.
The pot body is rounded - with a delicate spout. A contrasting finial graces this tea pot.
Usage and care: Hand-wash with water only.
