Duo is the pronunciation of 掇, as the name of this Duo Zi Teapot. Duo Zi is a container with big mouth, used for containing cooking oils, salt, sauce and other seasoners, often being moved. The word Duo refers to transfer or move.
The teapot is manually made by the maker Sun Wen, a young female potter who was born in a family of potters in Dingshu Village, Yixing, Jiangsu Province. The Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra is carved around the teapot body by hand.
Zhu Ni clay is known for higher contraction ratio. Thus after being shaped, the handmade teapot may have traces of making tools. On the other hand, the high contraction ratio of Zhu Ni makes it cannot stand instant temperature changing. Therefore, when using this Heart Sutra Duo Zi Yixing Teapot, it is important to warm the teapot before pouring hot water in, in order to avoid any damage caused by instant temperature increasing.
