Hand-thrown porcelain・Glazed interior
This hand-thrown porcelain gaiwan is a new commission from Lilith Rockett’s studio. The clay body is a natural white tone, and the interior of the vessel has a smooth, satin-matte clear glaze that accommodates a range of different teas.
We’ve omitted the base saucer this year because doing so better accentuates the elegantly tapered foot. The exterior is unglazed and buffed by hand to an exceedingly smooth, satiny finish.
Please take note that gaiwans are each hand-made, and can vary slightly in size and shape.
Usage and care: The unglazed exterior will season with use. We prefer the character that each takes on, but staining can easily be removed with non-toxic stain remover. Hand-wash only with mild detergent. Rinse well.
Approximate dimensions: 95mm tall, 90mm diameter, approximately 180ml
