Tea boats and trays

Tea Boat from Mr Lin | Ci Cha Pan B1

Product code: CSAC-452
Add to my notebook

The Taiwanese potter Lin Jianhong from Luku in Taiwan, refined his study of ceramic art with the great masters of Japan.

He uses Ru Yao celadon glaze, a style developed during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). His pieces are gas oven fired at temperatures that reach 1,250 ° Celsius. This results in pieces with a velvety texture and a finish like a coating of rich icing. The few areas of unglazed clay add a nice contrast to the eye and to the touch.

Besides being a serving tray and contributing to the aesthetics of the tea ritual, this tea boat is a ceramic container to catch the water. Depending on the infusion technique used, you can dispose of the water used to heat your equipment as well as your rinse water. The water is drained by pouring through the hole on the top corner of the tea boat.

To learn more about the artist's approach see the article on this Tea Tasters Blog.
