With roots tracing back to the Han dynasty, this 19th-century vessel emulates the full-bodied shapes and unusual glazing found in ancient ceramics. Marked with barren spots, a rich, brown glaze clings to the pot’s broad shoulders, pooling irregularly and creating a pattern of light and dark across the vessel. This seemingly haphazard glazing technique seen in older ceramics was originally thought to be an unintended consequence of uncontrolled drafts during firing. However, current thinking suggests that early potters deliberately sifted ash over the pots before firing to achieve this form-enhancing application of glaze. Intentional or not, this style profoundly influenced the course of Chinese ceramics - resulting in this expressive petite vessel

“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.”
