Sculpted during the early 20th century in China's Shanxi province, this vessel has a smoky grey-black exterior with balanced proportions and a beautifully irregular unglazed surface. Charged with the humble task of storing dry goods, this earthenware jar has a tapered form with a narrow base, high shoulders and a constricted neck. Left undecorated, the jar has a quiet beauty, patterned only by firing imperfections and the brushed texture of its mottled slip clay finish. With rich surface texture, we love this storied vessel as a planter for garden foliage or indoor houseplants.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
