Gaiwan

$24.00

Description

Steep in the understated elegance of this exquisitely hand-crafted celadon gaiwan. An unglazed lid top and darker edges bring a subtle rustic quality to contrast the gaiwan’s lusturous, milky blue-green glaze, while also ingeniously making it easier to grip and maneuver. Beautiful to behold and use.

Unique crazing covers the gaiwan, and with use, the fine network of beautiful crackles will fill in and darken.

Commissioned in February 2013, each celadon gaiwan is hand-sculpted by Taiwanese ceramicist Xu De Jia in his home studio. Each gaiwan is unique, with subtle differences in size, shape and crazing.
