Angel's Comment:

The model of the teapot is simple and classic, and the "weight" shape reflects its steady and dignified beauty.

The modeling ideas of Zisha teapot usually comes from our daily life. The teapot maker got inspiration from life and then extracted the shape of a teapot. Qinquan teapot is one of the typical representatives, its appearance comes from the very common weighing tool, which is called "quan" (权) in ancient China. The reason why the character "Qin" (秦) is added in front is because Emperor Qin Shihuang unified the weights and measures, so that the weighing tool is based on the " weight " of Qin Dynasty, therefore people call it "Qinquan".


Inspiration of Qinquan Teapot: weight

The shape of Qinquan teapot gives us a sense of stability. Its lid is like an “arch bridge”, which is very similar to the part on the top of the weight. The line of the teapot body is concise and plump, giving a sense of simplicity and calmness.


Material - Di Cao Qing (底槽清)

Di Cao Qing was originally produced in Huanglong, Dingshan, Yixing, in Jiangsu Province, widely used by teapot makers early in history; now, however, it is extremely rare. The turquoise Ben Shan particles, known as “corn” or “cat’s eye”, are unevenly distributed in the original ore - when the clay is mixed and then fired, it becomes mild and exquisite, purple with golden speckles and with the surface taking on a ruddy and somewhat oily texture.


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.
