Song Qi Qi
An artist who has no regards for the national artist qualification system but certainly one of the more talented ones in the contemporary Yixing circle. Song Qi Qi maintains a low profile but her works are so outstanding that she is one of the most imitated. One can see forged artist seals in her name in teapots priced at various ranges. Her achievement in the craft is exhibited not only in the precision and slickness of the form, but also in the mastery of the clay itself.
About this teapot
This ‘Fang Gu’ piece is a good example of the artist’s use of form and material. Itself a classic and very practical form style, the curves, forms and proportions are precisely crafted. This humble form is given a unique and bright colour clay to give a contemporary, yet still humble statement.
Unlike what one can see in some counterfeit Yixing pots with glossy finish and bright colours, this classical yellow is achieved by way of fermentation and blending of Yixing ores and manipulation in firing. The hue and chromatic intensity reminds of Ming dynasty tribunal porcelain.
Packing: Tea towel pull bag in collector’s case
