This Ding styled Yixing teapot presents a feeling of solemnity, tradition and mystery. Its feature is that the square shape is hidden in the round shape, so it appears bright and hard. The bronze cultural elements of this teapot are a very important part of Chinese traditional culture.
The Bronze Age is the second principal period of the three-age Stone-Bronze-Iron system. Chinese Bronze Age is the "period between about 2000 BC and 771 BC". In this period, People made many bronze artifacts, such as the numerous large sacrificial tripods known as “Ding” (鼎 in chinese). Wu Guoliang absorbed this and that’s why his teapot has the verve and charm of the traditional teapot skills.
The maker of this teapot is Wu Guoliang who is an excellent potter. He was born in Yi Xing which is famous for pottery. From his childhood he was interested in Yixing purple clay, and after he graduated, he went the first Zi Sha factory to learn how to make teapots. Educated by many famous potters, his teapots have all the advantages of other potters. The style of teapots that he made is unconventional, the lines are very smooth and the verve is very vivid.
Purple clay: The purple clay (Zi Sha) has the characteristics of fast heat transmission and good heat preservation. Teapots made by this material are specifically designed to retain the aroma and flavors of the tea.
It is better to use a certain Yixing Teapot only for one kind of tea. This clay is porous when fired and is ideal for the making of teapots. Over time, the clay absorbs the flavors from the tea and releases them later. The teapots have become popular in China since the North Song Dynasty and were traded to many countries.
