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.
Matte black ash crackles across the body of this pot, creating a near skin like texture to the form. The pot seems to suck in light, a negative space that draws attention to the shapes between its handle, shoulder, and spout. A tightly fitting lid, glazed interior, and honeycombed filter beneath the spout allow for quick, clean pouring. Signed by the artist.
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.
