Angel's Comment:

This Zisha teapot shapes in round and steady form, carrying the best wishes for the years ahead.

Ruyi is a classic type of teapot that originated during the Chinese Ming Dynasty. The lid is even and symmetric with a four-petal pattern, recognized as a symbol of auspiciousness; the plump, round body allows tea leaves a comfortable space in which to stretch and expand; and the decoration around the body applies both delicate calligraphy as well as hand-painted images, connecting and enriching the value and meaning of the teapot as a whole. This teapot also has three legs along the bottom of the body, granting stability and simple magnificence.

Material

Because it is made from zhuni, this teapot is a rich red color with a slightly orange hue, and a smooth, soft surface. The style of the teapot is simple and understated, yet at the same time quaint and elegant; the material has a distinctive double-pore surface with tiny corrugations, allowing the teapot to both breathe and to hold in the fragrances and tastes of tea brewed with it.

Note: make sure to “preheat” or warm the teapot before using it to brew, by pouring warm water into and over it before the water for your tea. Zhuni does not react well to quick changes in temperature.

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.
