The Shi Piao in all its glory: a heightened drama, a stark presence, a geometric inevitability.
Master potter Zhu Huan brings all of her craft to bear in this inspired piece. In its lines and the mottling of the spectacular Chen Pi Sha Ni clay, this Shi Piao is a conversation between clay as yielding boundless form and clay as unyielding rock.
This dramatic tension plays out in the almost “hewn” calligraphic bamboo against the smooth buffed clay, and the curves against the geometry of the triangular form.
This masterwork is ready to take on deeper luster and patina over a lifetime of use.
