Artisan Jian Shui Purple Clay Color Inscribed Lotus Teapot and Cups Set
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. Jian Shui teapots have a distinct style as compared to other clay pottery, as they typically feature more decorative elements.
This beautiful teapot represents the modern style of Jian Shui purple clay teapot. The contemporary artists apply a traditional technique of carving and clay-filling to display their artwork on the teapot, but with more vivid imagery and eye-popping colors. Lotus flowers are beloved subjects in Chinese traditional arts and crafts, implying a Zen philosophy and good virtue. The cabbage implies good fortune in traditional folk culture.
The flower pattern on each teapot might be slightly different than what is displayed in the pictures below. Your purchase includes a beautiful case to protect the teapot when traveling or when not in use.
This set includes a teapot and two cups.
