Porcelain・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.
Soft, delicate tones radiate from this kyushu, side handled teapot. Wood ash covers the top, pooling in the groove of the lid, and darkening as it dips down the sides of the body like spill of green ink. Golden slip flashes brightly below with a patina that will grow with continued use.
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.
