This teapot is loosely made in the shape of a segment of bamboo - hence the name Zhu Duan. The stylish appearanceof this teapot is enhanced by the color of this clay, which is a very rich medium old-leather-chair brown color.

But if you look very closely at the clay thru a magnifying glass you will see why the clay has such a rich color: a field of microscopic black flecks in the clay influences the color but are not apparent to the naked eye.

Such a nice adage to remind one of the benefits of drinking tea and appreciating art every day.

This contemporary design teapot mimics the apperance of a 'crazed' or 'cracked' teapot by incorporating thin lines of yellow clay. There is a pun in this design - some of the clay that is pulled from the ground in the Yixing area is found in thin layers in large rock sections, so the rocks must be broken to remove the clay.

Slightly larger in capacity than many Yixing teapots, this modernist teapot is well-designed and well-made.

The clay came from the clay reserves stored in the warehouses of the old Yixing No.1 factory ( Jiangsu Yixing Purple Clay Art Factory ) and the teapot was medium-high fired in one of the old factory kilns.
