A Chinese teapot, solitary par excellence, a Gaiwan of a deep blue like the night from which stands out a snow-capped, silent and eternal mountain which seems to be reflected in calm water. This is what this gaiwan inspires in us, it invites us to take a moment of contemplative pose.
Beautiful ceramic porcelain in stunning white on the inside, the outside is coated in a hand painted pigmented glaze of the intense white pattern which blends into the blue. The gaiwan dates from the Ming dynasty and is still popular, it is classified rather as a tea service. The elders say: "The lid for the sky, the saucer for the earth, and the bowl for man".
