Genuine Yixing Zisha Purple Clay Zu Ni Lianzi Teapot
This beautiful teapot is a timeless classic beloved by many Yixing pot lovers. Lianzi means continuous children in Chinese. The shape of the teapot represents several circles stacked together, implying good wishes for more children. Additional children signifies more fortune and happiness in traditional Chinese culture. The composition is the fullness of the pot, with neck and shoulder smoothing out, and its arched lid and rounding plumpness of the body in complete harmony. The spout and handle are balanced and aesthetically come together as an appealing whole. Overall, the simple yet gracefully designed teapot will surely add enjoyment to your daily tea ritual.
This teapot is completely hand-made by Qian Wei, who is an artist potter certified by the national artistry and crafts governing body. She was born into a famous Yixing pottery family and has been crafting Zisha teapots for 20 years. Her father is master Qian He Shen, who is the nephew and successor of China's famed greatest master Jiang Rong 蒋蓉. Master Qian apprenticed and learned from his aunt during his tenure at the state-owned First Yixing Zisha factory in the 1980s and has been passing on the tradition to his daughter.
The clay is the beloved Zu Ni from the Yellow Dragon Mountain of Yixing, from the Qian family's private zisha reservoir. You can see the radiance of the clay. Zu Ni is especially great for brewing oolong tea and black tea.
