Glazed stoneware・Wood-fired・185ml

Ceramicist Liao Guo Hua works with a range of different clay bases and glazes, using long, five-day firings in wood kilns to draw out the uniqueness of each piece. Each piece is then wood-fired for 5 days.

This pot has a mottled grey and sage glazing, thicker and glossier on the read of the pot, and more speckled in front. The pot shape is round with a flat lid. Simple spout, with 7 outlets for water evacuation. A very fine crazing covers the glossy surfaces of this pot.

Usage and care: Wood-fired pieces will season very slowly over time, though limited porosity allows for use of different tea types. Exterior of the teapot will deepen in color and develop a rich luster as it patinas. Hand-wash only without soap or detergent.

Approximate dimensions: 75mm tall, 80mm diameter, 185ml・Artist: 廖國華
