150 ml Yixing Zisha Teapot, Dicaoqing clay, by Lin Hanpeng
This is an yixing teapot made from dicaoqing clay, a dark brown-purple clay.
This teapot has a unique shape reflecting the artist's take on classic fruit, pear designs for yixing zisha teapots. This pot is known as "half-handmade" as the sculptor uses a molding tool to shape the body, and uses his hands for the handle, spout, holes, and smoothing out the body. In fact, no machine was used in it's shaping as the use of the tool is entirely manual. This pot holds 150 ml and was made by Lin Hanpeng 林汉鹏.
