Cloaked in a beautifully irregular brown-green slip finish, this 19th-century earthenware pot was charged with the humble task of storing dry goods in a Qing dynasty kitchen. The lobed pot has a round form with a narrow base and a tall neck flanked by two small strap handles. Fluid, all-over ribbed designs stretch across the surface of the jar, a utilitarian texture that provides additional exterior grip. The jar has a quiet beauty, patterned by rhythmic grooves to enliven its modest, provincial construction. The chiseled surface of the pot has weathered with time, developing subtle color variation and adding rich character to the terra cotta.

“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.”
