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.

This lovely teapot features the motif of a graceful pine bough. The workmanship is fine and delicate - the branches have small clusters of pine-green clay executed in a circular pattern that depict the needle clusters on a pine bough.The lid, handle and spout interract with the branching to become part of the motif.

Artist Ling Yanping has keep the design minimal and restrained - there is just enough decoration to underscore the  theme of the teapot but not so much that the motif overwhelms the teapot's elegant form.

This is a sweet little teapot that was made in the 1990's. It is an early work of the Jing Dian Tao Fang clay studio and is made from aged Hong Ni clay. The clay came from 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.

This is an early work of the Jing Dian Tao Fang clay studio and is made from aged Hong Ni clays in 1977. 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.

Today, the old tea factory functions as home to a collection of pottery studios with artists of different craft levels working in the skeleton of the old state run tea factory building but with a new modern air of individual entrepreneurship and international commerce.

This little teapot is one of several that we purchased in China in the early 2000's. It is well made and substantial in feeling, and will take on a nice patina after putting it into use. The applied bamboo leaf pattern ( which is carried thru on the lid and handle) is lovely detail that dresses up the pot while still retaining a simple nature.

We do not know anything about it but can tell from the feel that it is slab molded, not slip cast. We recently ran it through its paces a few times with some dark oolong tea and it pours well.

This cute fat little teapot  with an upturned spout is an interpretation of the classic Rong Tian shape. The pot has been highly burnished by the potter and the color is warm, brown with a slight purple cast in certain light.

The wide, fat belly and slightly larger size is perfect for steeping teas that will unfurl to a large size, such as dark oolongs, semiball-rolled oolongs and sheng Pu-erh.

This teapot has a simple, traditonal form which gives it confidence and elegance. The teapot features three little round feet on the bottom, which elevates the teapot just a little.

It has a very smooth finish, and is cool to the touch, like a riverstone. The clay is soft brown with a hint of grey, and the overall appearance is one of refined austerity. The handle on the lid is shaped like a little bridge that spans the steam escape hole.
