Angel's Comment:

Inspired by the guardrail of Chinese old well, the teapot is used the rare Jiangpo Ni as the raw material, and painted with vivid landscape scenery and delicate calligraphy, which is most Zisha lovers’ best choice for collection.

The shape of the Jing Lan style of teapot comes from the guardrails of old Chinese wells, both protecting the well from collapsing as well as keeping people from falling into it; in ancient Chinese poetry, it often symbolized ‘homeland’..
This pot is made of rare Jiangpo Ni clay from Huanglong Mountain, and is engraved with exquisite images and words of landscapes. It is a steady, solid pot with a flat bottom, lid, and overall appearance, somewhat square in shape; the handle’s height is close to that of the body, granting a stronger sense of stability when pouring. The spout is short and straight, with the liquid flowing smoothly and quickly. The mouth of the pot underneath the lid is large, suitable for bigger tea leaves and allowing for convenient cleaning; the lid connects tightly as well, guaranteeing an airtight seal, and the button on top looks almost like a small bridge.

The images represent peaceful landscape scenery, while the words read Bai chuan gui hai (百川归海), referring to streams and rivers flowing into the sea.

Material

Xiang Po Ni: This clay was originally found in the early 90s when the Yixing government opened the so-called “pottery capital road” running from Dingshan to Yixing, passing through the junction slope of Huanglong and Qinglong Mountains. To smooth the slope, the workers began cutting and digging it away, which resulted in the discovery of the raw Zisha ore. It is also called Gangpo Ni by some local people.
It was discovered by accident, and as such, its stock is scarce. It is light-brown in color which turns a lovely red speckled with yellow once fired, a fresh tone with a granular texture that becomes a bit oily and waxy afterwards, all in all an excellent variety of Zisha clay.

The Maker - Sun Wen

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.
