Gaiwan + Saucer

Gaiwan + Saucer

Regular price $45.00
/

To bring our dream gong fu teaware to life, we traveled to Jingdezhen, the ceramics capital of China. There, we were lucky to stumble on the Li family studio, where a husband and wife team create beautiful porcelain pieces with a modern twist. We knew they could help us create the functional and playful pieces we had always wanted.

All our teaware is handcrafted. Some variation is natural & makes your set one-of-a-kind! 

Gaiwan is approx. 3.75" in diameter and 3.25" tall with lid (2.25" tall without lid). Saucer is approx. 4.25" in diameter.

    Very nice but a little flawed

    I love the color and simple, modern design of this gaiwan. It had a few blemishes in the porcelain on the underside of the lid but that's no big deal. However, there are some potential design oversights. There is almost no basin in the middle of the saucer for the foot of the bowl to fit into in order to help avoiding dropping the bowl when holding and pouring by sandwiching the bowl between the lid and saucer "hamburger" style. The pour on this gaiwan is a bit messier than others I've used but with a little practice, it's manageable. I feel like the dimensions of the piece such as the size of the lip flare and the height at which the lid sits could be better to improve the pour and reduce the likelihood of burnt fingers. It's a beautiful piece and if the aesthetic makes you happy, I recommend getting it. But you should know all of what to expect for the price.
