A stunning replica of one of the most famous pieces from the Song Dyanasty Imperial Ru Kilns. This lotus-shaped incense bowl is handcrafted from light clay and glazed with Taiwanese master ceramicist Xu De Jia's hallmark Ru-style celadon. Commissioned in 2019, the bowl comes with a removable incense stand in the center, which can double as a platform for holding a single teapot while brewing.
The shape of the bowl evokes lotus petals, and the cloudy blue celadon is slightly under-fired to create a smooth, satiny feel. A subtle web of craquelure covers the bowl; barely visible when new, these lines will deepen in color with use.
