Water Lily

  • A captivating, Longquan celadon porcelain gaiwan with the most delicately incised water-lily pattern in smoky blue glaze. Northern Song celadon kilns favored incised patterns such as this. Designs were, as they are here, hand-sharpened into the white bisque ware before being glazed for a second firing. The glaze pools in the more deeply carved areas and creates a slightly darker color. The resulting effect of the design appears on the surface as quiet as a watermark. Ensemble includes lid, bowl, and saucer.

    This gaiwan is glazed inside and out for use with any type of tea.
