Sculpted during the early 20th century in China's Shanxi province, this terra cotta vessel has a smoky taupe-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 flat rim. Left undecorated, the jar has a quiet beauty, patterned only by firing imperfections and the brushed texture of its mottled slip clay finish. We love this storied vessel as a planter for indoor houseplants.
