A stunning red. Each Gaiwan is handmade and unique. They range from 120-160ml. You can let me know if you want one on the larger or smaller side, or can request more photos.
These gaiwans were handmade by Mark Mohler using Lizella clay from the Appalachians in Georgia where he grew up. Making pottery with local clay is one key trademark of Buncheong, and of all great pottery of tea culture. Mark's relationship with Lizella allows him to fire the clay high and make strong durable teaware at any thickness.
The Buncheong Aesthetic
They are made with Buncheong tools that Mark carved after receiving the transmission from a master in Korea. Instead of cutting clay away, Buncheong tools push and displace. You can see the interesting shapes the clay takes on in the knob and foot. I like how the knob rises from the lid like a landform.
