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, some with reddish or copper tints.

This beautiful teapot represents the modern style of Jian Shui purple clay teapot. The young generation artists apply the traditional technique of clay-filling inscribed carvings to display art on the teapot, but with more vivid imagery. The thread connects the lid and pot together for convenient use. 

Your purchase includes a beautiful case to protect the teapot when traveling or when not in use.

Capacity; 170ml / 5.7oz.
