  1. Goldwork Ru Gaiwan Gongfu Tea Set
    Goldwork Ru Gaiwan Gongfu Tea Set

    This Ru glaze set features a gaiwan, a pitcher, and two cups, all with the same complimentary motifs. The creamy blue-green Ru glaze against the gold celebrates the tradition of bringing new life to old pieces through gold repair work. As ancient pieces are excavated, instead of preserving cracked shards, modern collectors are repairing these relics with gold so that they can be used in tea brewing the way the original artist intended. This gold work has spurred the growth of a new craft, adding adornment to the repairs- a modern dialog with ancient pieces. This Ru pot draws on the goldwork tradition with a golden motif of its own, a contrast to the lightly-crackled Ru glaze itself.

    This full set is a celebration of Pengyuan Qinghua studio’s incredible work with hand painting and fine thin porcelain, including a gaiwan, a pitcher and two cups.

The inlay work would have originally been done with shells in ancient times, but now, Nixi potters like Dangzhen Pichu are collaborating with masters in Jingdezhen, and the current practice now uses carefully trimmed pieces of porcelain as a tribute to an intersection of traditions. Each hand made pitcher is unique with natural variation in finish and texture.

  27. Oil Spot Freeform Pitcher
    Oil Spot Freeform Pitcher
    Oil Spot, or you di is one of the oldest and most traditional Song Dynasty forms. Award-winning master-potter Lin Xi has done years of research on ancient techniques and in his unique one-man studio, is working to revive the ancient art of you di glazing, sourcing and blending his clay and glazing material from the original mineral deposits tapped in the Song Dynasty. This unique pitcher was fully hand-thrown, with glazes hand blended and dipped, and fired in tiny batches dependent on the whims of weather and kiln heat patterns to achieve the desired effect. Each of Lin Xi’s pitchers is unique, relying on his technique of throwing a wide cup and ‘flicking’ the spout shape at the last moment to achieve the most fluid look. This technique requires the perfect weight and thickness of cup and even just the right humidity and weather to get right, so Lin Xi makes very few pitchers each year.
