Hand Thrown Yellow Ash Gaiwan | Yangyang Li Jingdezhen
We first met Yangyang Li in the night market in Jingdezhen - the porcelain capital of China.
From the moment you hold these and throughout the infusion you can feel and experience the fine finish - a finish that is only possible to produce through very delicate hand throwing skills
Upon the top 'we carved a small knob on the lid to look like a rock.' Yang Yang explains 'We hope to give the user a stone-like vibe in a subtle way which pleases the user but doesn't effect the whole appearance as a Gaiwan'
The beautiful glaze used is mixed with plant ash which is very tricky to handle. So tricky that it has just a 50% success rate after firing! Something that makes these beautiful creations even more precious
