Stoneware・Glazed・Wood-fired

Taiwanese artist Liao Guo Hua’s mastery of his craft yields pots rich with personality. Smooth, clean throw lines draw his pots up or out, signifying stateliness or gravity, respectively, and each meticulous tilt of handle or spout adds to the individual narrative of the piece.

Clean lines draw the eye up and around this pot, moving from the round finial to the sloped spout and across to a gently lobed handle. The base cuts in at an angle creating a shadow beneath the pot that adds height to this dignified piece. Inside the vessel, you’ll find a honeycomb filter cut into the clay that keeps loose tea leaves inside and makes for a quick, dripless pour.

Usage and care: Unglazed wood-fired pieces will season very slowly over time, though limited porosity allows for use of different tea types. The exterior of the teapot will deepen in color and develop a rich luster with use. Hand-wash only, without soap or detergent.

Approximate dimensions: 95mm tall, 70mm diameter, 225ml・Artist: 廖國華
