Glazed Pot

AQ12 | Glazed Pot

A Qing Dynasty ceramic stoneware pot with a crackled green glaze, hailing from mid-18th century China. The color quality here is fabulous—the juiciest, most pellucid marine blue-green, with soft washes of a darker hue dotting the surface in an irregular pattern. The overall decorative program is sensuous, abstract, organic, vaguely recalling leaves floating on the surface of water.   

China, circa 1850

Dimensions: 8W x 8D x 7.5H
