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.

As though dusted in fine, metallic glitter, this little teapot looks hewn from bronze or burnished gold. Round and compact, the shape of the body is mirrored in the handle, holding its weight high, and tapering off at the base. There is an alertness to this pot, the set of its shoulder and jaunty tip of the spout, stand as though ready and waiting to brew a toasty, golden oolong.

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: 85mm tall, 75mm diameter, 200ml・Artist: 廖國華
