Angel's Comment:

This teapot is made in the shape of a pumpkin, the special Jiao Ni (mixed clay) crafts also makes this teapot unique.

Pumpkin teapot, also named gourd, which is one of the classic shapes of the teapot, with the meaning of well-blessing and good health. The body of this teapot is made of Qing Shui Ni, and been divided into six parts. The “stem” on the top is the teapot button; the other “stems” are designed as teapot spout and handle, which are all made of Jiao Ni. There are 9 filter holes inside the body, which can not only effectively filter the tea residue, but also make the tea liquid pouring very smooth. The shape of the teapot is very cute, just like a mature little pumpkin, which let us fondle admiringly.

Because it contains relatively smaller ratio impurities than other material, and the big fire won't change its shape and glaze, it is widely used. And as it is mellow ruddy, it is also called red purple clay or Hong Qing Shui. The clay looks quaint, and after long time use the same teapot to brew the same teas, the taste of tea will be better. And there are many traditional models; both the makers and teapot lovers like to use this kind of clay.
