Stoneware・5 Day 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.
An endearing shape, gently bubbled and smooth, contrast against the near-metallic surface, walk a narrow line between soft and hard. Inside, a warm white liner glaze opposes the dark, reflective glaze of the exterior. The tension of these visual elements is offset by a sweet spout, lifted skyward, and a unique groove set into the rim of the pot. The side set kyushu handle is placed perpendicular to the body, keeping your fingers cool as you pour.
Usage and care: Wood-fired pieces will season very slowly over time. The exterior of the teapot will deepen in color and develop a rich luster with use. Hand-wash only, without soap or detergent.
