400.00

This traditional qing hua gai wan is a modern day masterpiece. Each of the steps in making this gai wan were commissioned out to craftsman specialize in one specific technique.

This gai wan is hand made with 100% original kaolin clay (from Gao Ling) with no dilution with bone ash or glass. The hand-painted pattern is fired at over 1300C to turn the black ink into the classic blue and white color. The glaze follows an ancient formula with ash of Lang Ji grass (Indigofera pseudotinctoria Matsum) and urine. The mixture is then fermented for at least a month to create the glaze and then blew on the vessel, instead of the more common dipping method to create a plumper and softer texture resembles skin. The gai wan is also fired old fashioned with the lid facing downward so the edge of the lid stay smooth.
