One of Shen’s most recognisable style is elaboration on well-defined classic traditional Yixing teapot forms with rich surface relief. To achieve the artistic vision for this Diamond the master artist took on the technical challenge of maintaining the continuation of irregular surface undulations from the pot belly to the lid. While at the same time, the lid has to sit perfectly into the recessed neck, as in the traditional form.
The resultant piece is an amazing gem of unparalleled beauty. Little kernels of duan-ni ( one kind of Yixing clay ) almost glitter on the silky, glistering surface of dark burgundy. Moisture management of the top notch zisha clay has to be timely, consistent and optimum from refinery through working to firing in order to give the luxurious and impeccable lustrous surface of this pure clay work. Once the pot gets into the palm of the hand, it is hard to let it go. The form, weight, tactility, and every little crease and curve are simply too addictive to part from. A desirable collectible as well as a unique tea tool.
Packing: Tea towel pull bag in artist’s own collector’s case
This piece was acquired a couple of years ago at the old price. Shen’s fame has risen significantly meanwhile, and so has the price tag on his works. Our offer may well be perceived as the current broker’s deal.
Unless otherwise stated, all Yixing teapots are new from the kiln. Please properly clean and prepare them before making tea in them. There is a proper procedure to do that. It is described at:
