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.

Please Note: This is a handmade item – slight variations in the painting, colors, tooling, patterning and kiln effects of Chinese and Japanese teawares are to be expected. We have carefully photographed this item as best as possible – please be aware that different device screens can render colors and subtle tones slightly differently.
