 We couldn't be more excited to welcome you to our new Little Earthquake Gaiwan. A stunning tea vessel that combines masterful elegance with a light and dexterous functionality. The earthy clay base has a luscious smooth glaze that gives this Gaiwan a special feel and design. Each one is fully hand-made, crafted by the truly magnificent potter, Charlie ClarkeIt is a delight to make Chinese Gong Fu tea in these beautiful Gaiwans. 

These Gawians are made with a stoneware clay (high-fired) with a choice of different types of glazes (resulting in the differing colours). The Pale Green Gaiwan has a celadon glaze, a material & style originating from the Ming Dynasty, China.

We love Gaiwans, they are one of our favourite items to brew tea in, such a simple and creative invention. Chinese tea culture is incredibly advanced and especially artistic, which we believe is physically represented in the Gaiwan. For some time we have been hoping to find someone local to rise to the challenge of making us a Gaiwan and we feel very lucky to have met the perfect potter, Charlie. The Little Earthquake Gaiwan combines an English artistic sensibility with Chinese inventiveness. We proudly use these Gaiwans ourselves, and are overjoyed to be sharing them with you too.

These magic little tea vessels are made in Nailsworth, UK, at the Little Earthquake Pots studio. A fully off-grid pottery workshop, run by Charlie Clarke. A fairytale wooden hut studio, created by another master, the woodsman Will Darby, surrounded by the forest spirits of Gloucestershire.

Gaiwan Care:

These Gaiwans are dishwasher & microwave safe, however we recommended avoiding stacking them with other crockery as they may crack due to their fine nature. 

Note: These gaiwans are handmade, so small variations in capacity, appearance and experience may occur. We check each Gaiwan before shipping.
