We acquired a small handful of these simple wood-fired servers from ceramicist Zhang Yun Cheng. Each is thrown by hand of stoneware. Though thin - especially for a piece that was fired for 5 consecutive days in a wood-burning kiln - the base is slightly weighted for balance.
None of the pieces entered the kiln glazed, but emerged with a golden patina from the wood-burning kiln.
This server is especially well-suited for a range of brew volumes.
* Please take note that each server can be slightly different in color tone and texture. It is not unusual to have areas of thicker ash glazing, and/or colorations that reflect the different interactions between the mineral content of the clay body and fly ash glaze. Each server is different, and may not be identical to the photographed item.
