The Iron Red | Handmade Gaiwan
Is this simply a white Gaiwan, or is there more to it? The Porcelain Company only sells unique, handmade porcelain, so you might have already guessed the right answer.
This Gaiwan displays an artistic 'iron red' -style pattern as well as a beautiful golden layer. Both the 'Gai' (Cover) and the 'Wan' (Bowl) have an inscribed layer of the iron red style, which at first sight looks like a rough gold layer. At a closer inspection it reminds of an ancient Egyptian artwork.
The white porcelain contains the best Kaolin clay, strong enough to carry the weight of all this 'hidden' craftsmanship. A collector's item, only for preparing the best tea leaves!
