This Gaiwan is originally designed and hand made by young artist Ma, from throwing to hand painting with mineral glaze color to final firing. It is pottery made and has a moon face like texture, and it’s fired at above 1300C for 15 hours. The crazing effect will become more obvious as you continue brewing tea inside. It also comes with matching cups!
We visited his studio in March, 2021 and witnessed his hand painting process. We also did a live on Instagram to showcase his studio while he was painting the Ginko leaves.
