Maker: Yue Chao Clay: Fine Black Porcelain Style: Gaiwan Kiln: Wood-Fire Volume: 100ml
This exquisite 100ml gaiwan is both elegantly refined while being touched with the rustic chaos of a wood-fired kiln. Parts are glossy and vitrified, others show off the roughly fire burnished. We have only carried a handful of Yue Chao's gaiwans, and they tend to sell out very quickly.
This piece was made by the master ceramicist Yue Chao, who attained his Masters in Ceramics from the prestigious Beijing Central Arts Academy, and has been living and working in Jingdezhen since 2010.
Every piece has been hand thrown by him, trimmed and shaped, then wood fired over a period of three days at temperatures over 1300 degrees Celsius. As each piece is unique, we have listed them all separately to allow a greater connection between you and your future teapot.
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.
