Yue Chao

Yue Chao graduated from one of China's most prestigious fine arts universities: Beijing's Central Fine Arts Academy.  This name alone is enough to impress most locals, but what really impressed us about Yue Chao is his quiet demeanor and his flawless craftsmanship.

All his pieces are hand thrown by him, trimmed and shaped, then wood fired over a period of three days at temperatures over 1300 degrees Celsius.  As every piece has been wood-fired, the slightly uneven flame and heat distribution in the kiln has created subtle variations on each piece in the form of crackled vitrified glazes, rough flame marks (火纹), and other unique elements to make each piece truly irreplaceable.
