Glazed stoneware・Wood-fired・190ml

Ceramicist Liao Guo Hua works with a range of different clay bases and glazes, using long, five-day firings in wood kilns to draw out the uniqueness of each piece. This is one in a series of ten celadon pieces we commissioned in 2018 from Liao Guo Hua. This series features pale blue celadon glazing on the exterior, and a glazed interior. Each piece is then wood-fired for 5 days.

This egg-shaped tea pot has distinct coloration from the kiln. The exterior celadon glaze is smooth satin, with a band of dark iron spots around its equator, and on the elegant throated spout. The lid has a thicker accumulation of wood fly ash, giving it a dry matte texture. The interior is glazed. The lid has a ridge around its circumference, with a simple finial. Seven outlets for water evacuation. The foot of the teapot is unglazed, and signed by the artist.

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

Approximate dimensions: 85mm tall, 70mm diameter, 190ml・Artist: 廖國華
