Angel's Comment:

This Yixing Teapot is of big capacity and flowering decorated that makes it vivid and elegant.

An old CHinese saying says that where wealth and fortune come with the blooming of peonies, so does safety and luck come with bamboo. This Peony Bamboo Yixing Teapot has a bamboo-styled spout and handle, providing a strong grip and smooth water flow, while the blooming peony carved into the body provides a verdant, lively appearance. The pot is thick and stable, bearing an elegant round shape.

Material

Qing Shui Ni: The ore for this purple clay is a type of mica-rich hematite, often used for drinking mugs in ancient times. Because this clay contains relatively fewer impurities than other raw materials, and because it does not change shape or glaze when firing, it is widely used for crafts. It is mellow and ruddy as well, often earning the name of “red purple clay” or Hong Qing Shui. The clay has a quaint look to it, and after using a teapot made of this material for brewing the same type of tea over and over, the taste of that tea in further sessions will gradually deepen. For these reasons and others, both teapot makers and tea drinkers love this kind of clay.

Maker

Zhou Faqing was born in Yixing City, the home of the Zisha teapot, in 1965. He works closely with the academics of the Chinese Artists Association and the Jiangsu Folk Collection Research Association, and has been a Zisha craftsman since 1985. By 1992 he was recognized as a Craft Artist with a specialty in stylistic design: his products exhibit characteristics of ancient simplicity and rich dignity, firmly establishing him among modern antique artists.

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.
