Artisan Jian Shui Purple Clay Teapot Colored Inscribed Carving
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 color or are mixed tones, featuring reddish or copper tints.
This beautiful teapot represents the modern style of Jian Shui purple clay teapot. The younger generation artists apply the traditional technique of carving and clay-filling to display their artwork on the teapot, but with more vivid imagery and eye-popping colors. Bird and flowers are beloved subjects in Chinese traditional arts and crafts.
Your purchase includes a beautiful case to protect the teapot when traveling or when not in use.
