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.
Colors soft and bright define this teapot like strawberry spun sugar or the blushed cheek of a painted doll. Either way, it reads like a confection. The squared handle is perfect for balancing atop a finger as its poured, and the tiny minaret-shaped finial adds another element of wonder to this special piece.
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.
