This charming debut collection from New York artist, Erin Louise Clancy, is made for celebration. The artist’s delicate, watercolor-like glazing is rendered with a fine hand. The pale colors, pinks, yellows, oranges, and soft celadon blue are contrasted with splashes of gold luster that reflect ambient light.
The proportions of these gaiwans lends them distinct character. They stand slightly taller than expected, a posture that is at once eye catching and joyous. The lids are thrown with a round, convex profile, adding to the unique features of these bespoke vessels.
This series is accompanied by delicate tea cups, glazed to match.
* Please take note that each gaiwan can be slightly different in color tone, texture, size, and shape. It is not unusual to have areas of thicker glazing, and or colorations that reflect the different interactions between the mineral content of the clay body and glaze. Each gaiwan is hand made and unique, and may not be identical to the photographed item.
Usage and care: Hand-wash only, mild detergent and a soft sponge is ok.
