Hand-made Heart Sutra Shi Piao Yixing Teapot
Yixing (宜兴), Jiangsu Province, China
The body of the hand-made teapot may have handmade traces (Note: teapots of 100%
hand-made can’t be exactly the same as shown on the picture. So it is normal that in a few cases the
teapot may be very slightly different from that on the picture, however, the quality is always the same.)
5.7” W x 3” H (14.5cm x 7.5cm)
Compared the round, soft and girly lines of Xishi Ying Teapot, Shi Piao Teapot has straight, hard and manly lines.
This fully handmade Shi Piao Yixing teapot is an elegant and defined pot of simple, sturdy lines with a triangular body. The three feet along the bottom in the shape of the points of an equilateral triangle give the pot its stability, as well as establishing its practical simplicity.
The Heart Sutra along the body is one of the classic sutras of Mahayana Buddhism. It uses the fewest words to express the central essence of Buddhism, and is an integral part of Chinese culture.
Zhu Ni usually appears reddish-brown in color due to its high iron content. It also is highly contractible, making it difficult to shape into a perfect teapot - because of this, manby products have some corrugations and slight deformities. This pot presents a distinctive double-pore surface with tiny corrugations throughout, allowing it to breath and reserve the fragrances of brewed tea. For this reason, it is recommended that only one type of tea is brewed with this pot.
Note: First warm the pot with hot (40-50 C) water before pouring boiling water into it, as Zhu Ni has a high constriction percentage and cannot withstand fast temperature changes.
