Angel's Comment:

The design is elegant, petite, and adorable, and it is ideal for brewing many varieties of tea.

Nixing pottery is not glazed but natural firing. The clay is fine and smooth with good air permeability. Nixing pottery is rich in minerals, which produces kiln change during the firing process. The color of each pot may be slightly different during the kiln change. After certain time of raising/yang hu, the beauty of the teapot is easy to appear, the surface will become smoother and warmer with better colour.

The design of this Nixing teapot is similar to that of a Shi Piao, but the creator has made certain adjustments to make it seem more round and attractive. The side of the body is carved with a fish, with rich details and vivid images; and the other side are the words “ru yu de shui”(如鱼得水) engraved, which has a good meaning -- It literally means that it is just like a fish getting water, so it actually means getting a person who is very compatible with ourselves or an environment that is very suitable for ourselves.
