Tea Jar from Mr. Lin
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.
The inside of the jar is glazed and the lid perfectly covers the aperture, evidence of the thoroughness of the artisan’s work.
To learn more about the artist's approach see the article on this Tea Tasters Blog.
