Porcelain・Slip・Ash GlazedWood-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.

The light porcelain body of this teapot creates a distinct contrast to the earthen greens of the wood ash. There is a sweetness to this palette, like a freshly baked sugar cookie, still warm from the oven, and guise of innocent curiosity in its upward expression.

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: 70mm tall, 60mm diameter, 92ml・Artist: 廖國華
