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.

Wood fired pots are suitable for any tea type, but this one seems to beg for pu-erh or aged teas. The quiet form, earthen tones of the stoneware, and the rim of the pot, mirror the loamy, wooded profile of aged teas. There is an ascetic character to this pot that invites solo tea brewing, while contemplating how good tea has made this dystopian time so much more bearable.

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: 64mm tall, 75mm diameter, 160ml・Artist: 廖國華
