Sublime Wood Fired Tea Jar
- Additional information
As with the other pieces from this series, this tea jar features an understated, yet refined appearance, with a white base, smoky colour and touches of yellow.
This jar has a capacity of ~720ml and cork lid, which makes it suitable for storing just under a single full sized cake of puer or 150-500g of loose tea, depending on the type.
Although these pieces are unglazed, they were wood-fired at a very high temperature for several days straight, resulting in a vitrified surface.
These wood fired pieces are the result of years of wood firing experience and purposeful design. We chanced upon meeting the artist-couple behind them during a recent trip to Jingdezhen and instantly found a connection with their work.
Each aspect of the design and creation of these pieces has been considered in order to achieve an elegant result, from mixing their own proprietary clay, to designing and building their own kiln. They liken the creation of their ceramics to a painted trying to paint an image in their head, combining creativity and inspiration with honed skills. With enough time and effort, that image can be realized.
