Taiwanese artist Lin Jianhong has created this celadon work of art, a unique cup with a velvety texture and an enveloping finish.

Originally from Luku in Taiwan, the artist learned the refinement of ceramics from the great masters of Japan. Jianhong uses the Ru Yao glaze, a type of celadon developed during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912).  His pieces are fired in a gas kiln at a temperature of up to 1250° Celsius, which gives them a sweet, sugar-like effect.

Underneath the thick light blue coating, the raw clay adds a contrast that is pleasing to the eye and to the touch.

The inside of the jar is enamelled and the lid covers the opening perfectly, a testament the craftsman’s meticulousness.

Diameter of the opening: 7 cm

Height: 14.5 cm
