Photos are of actual gaiwan.
This ruyao gaiwan has a painting of plum blossoms on the outside of the gaiwan. The ruyao glaze is Shan Kiln's Moon White ruyao 月白汝窑.
Shan Kiln ruyao has a glow and a depth that are a result of the ruyao glaze recipes of the studio. When firing the pottery, and as the body expands, crazing appears on the surface of the glaze. These 开片 or "opening cracks," are found on all ruyao and will expand on the glaze with use. They give each piece its unique character.
This Ruyao Gaiwan was handmade by Master Lee ShanMing 李善明 of Shan Kiln. He has devoted himself to the art of ruyao for nearly two decades.
All pieces are delivered in a gift box.
