Chinese Incised Terracotta Grain Jar

About

Once used to hold stockpiles of grain, this capacious terracotta jar is distinguished by the energetic incised pattern covering its exterior. Using a simple forked tool, the potter layered the vessel with dense etchings to enliven the simply shaped vessel with visual rhythm and all-over texture. The jar was then cloaked in a wash of dark glaze, pooling and gathering in the incised crevices to accentuate the rhythmic pattern. An exposed lip adds further contrast and lends the vessel rustic charm. Tucked alongside a hearth or filled with lush foliage in the garden, this large grain jar is a wonderful addition to any space.
