From Liao Guo Hua’s personal archive come sixteen masterful teapots that together chart the breadth and variation of two decades of atmospheric firings in the artist’s remote wood kiln.
Thickly glazed, the elements of this pot - spout, lid, and handle, seem to emerge from the form like the playful shapes and features of a Brancusi sculpture. Swirls of molten ash run lace-like across the body, breaking the glaze into a dozen shades of milky browns.
With use, oils from tea will create a deepened color and luster on this pot's glazed surface. Signed by the artist.
Usage and care: This teapot is suit able for use with all tea types. Simply rinse between uses, or hand-wash without soap or detergent.
