Angel's Comment:

Inspired by dragons in mythical legendary, the teapot is in simple shape with promising moral.

Dragon as the spirit animal in ancient mythology symbolizes good fortune and success. This teapot is semi-manual and made of the material with abundant grain texture called “Xiangpo Ni”. It is convenient to both throw in and take out tea leaves with big mouth design; the handle is sculpted into a dragon head, strong and powerful, giving a feeling of stability; to echo with the handle, the spout also carries a vivid image of dragon head. Overall, this teapot has not been over-designed, a plain shape coupled with sleek lines making the dragon head teapot unique and charming.

Material

Xiang Po Ni:This clay was occasionally found in the early 90s when the Yixing government opened the “pottery capital road” from Dingshan to Yixing. This road must pass through the junction slope of Huanglong Mountain and Qinglong Mountain. In order to smooth the slope, the workers began to dig the slope and then found some Zisha raw ore, which was named “Xiangpo Ni” and also names “Gangpo Ni” by local people.

“Xiangpo Ni” was discovered by accident and its stock is scarce. The characteristics are: light brown in the primary color, after firing turning to red with yellow, fresh color with obvious granular sensation, after seasoning the surface becoming “oil and wax”. It is a good variety of Zisha clay.
