Angel's Comment:

This teapot is modelled on the style of chrysanthemum bud, with round and plump body and sedate color, which is the best teaware for business people and the elderly to use in their daily life.

This pot is modelled after the appearance of a chrysanthemum bud, one of the four famous Chinese flowers. Chrysanthemums present the symbolic meanings of auspiciousness, longevity, nobility, and purity; the craftsman chose this pattern not only for its good meaning, but also because the design presents a good challenge and requires a lot of skill.
The body is evenly divided into eight sections, with the lines hand-pressed to ensure the “petals” are clearly distinguished. Simply put, this pot is practical yet ornamental at the same time.

Teapot Dimensions

This teapot is handmade of high quality Zi Ni clay, and is suitable for collection both for its good texture and its beautiful blooming chrysanthemum appearance, the petal traces natural and elegant.

Material

Zi Ni: Zi Ni is a classic and widely recognized Zisha clay on the market, refined from Zisha ore dug out of the mine of Huanglong, Yixing. This clay has a stable, mature color, a high iron content, and good breathability and structure. Along with this, it barely contracts when fired and molds easily, marking it as a good choice for large crafts and also the first choice of clay for many Zisha makers. Teapots made out of Zi Ni can easily maintain a lustrous shine, and are generally preferred for brewing light-roasted oolong or pu-erh teas.

Maker

Sun Wen is a young female potter born in Dingshu Village, Yixing in Jiangsu Province, an area famous for its pottery. Her parents are experienced craftsmen of the discipline, and served as inspiration for her interest in the art of Yixing purple clay from her childhood. She has always studied hard in order to improve and advance her own workmanship, eventually establishing a quaint, elegant style of her own, including words and pictures carved into the teapot to enhance its meaning.

Origin

Yixing County is known as the Pottery Capital of China for its extensive 6500-year history of the craft. The area boasts abundant resources of argil, tea, bamboo, and charcoal, each of which contributes an important base material for the making of pottery. Yixing Zisha products have earned countless prizes both at home in China as well as abroad, with a few exceptional works presented as national gifts during international diplomacy.
