Stoneware・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.

A departure from the rounded, organic shapes of many of Liao Guo Hua’s work, this unexpected pot feels not unakin to a tree spirit. The articulated handle, rests carefully at the hip, catching magical rivulets of milky rutile glaze, run through with oxblood. A long, distinct spout balances the handle, creating a sturdy, uncompromising form.

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: 82mm tall, 78mm diameter, 190ml・Artist: 廖國華
