Artisan Jian Shui Purple Clay Hammered Finish with Thread Teapot
Jian Shui Purple Clay Pottery is one of the four famous classes of Chinese pottery. Jian Shui clay is extracted from the local "five color" mountain, as the soil has abundant deposits of red, yellow, purple, white, and brownish clay content, referred to by the locals as "Wu Se Tu", meaning five color soil. Iron is the richest element in this clay, so a lot of Jian Shui teapots have a black or brownish color.
This beautiful teapot represents the modern style of Jian Shui purple clay teapots. The hammered finish provides the appearance of a softer texture and feel, while the beads and thread add a touch of fun and connection between the lid and pot. Your purchase includes a nice case to protect the teapot when traveling or when not in use.
