A splendid clay teapot, in the shape of a pumpkin, it seems more real than the real thing! Here, we can only see all the know-how of the Yixing workshops, exceptional modeling, warm colors, soft and lustrous texture, we have the impression that our object is in a beautiful waxed leather. The leaf applications, the stem on the lid, the beak, the handle are of such quality that we forget its function as a teapot. An artisanal work that perpetuates the still relevant reputation of Yixing pottery.

Reminder: The purple or violet clay (Zisha) is extracted from the mountain located in Yixing province of Jiangsu. Its mineral content makes it solid when cooked and much more resistant to possible accidents. It has good air permeability which makes it suitable for all teas.

Nice capacity: 550ml

Master craftsmanship.
