Lang Gui Jianshui Purple Clay Wood-fired Side Handle Teapot

 
$ 870.00

This one-of-the-kind teapot is handcrafted by the very best master potter Lang Gui, who is the leading Jian Shui wood-firing potter artist and pioneer in contemporary Jian Shui bionomic naturalism craftmanship. Master Lang Gui grew up in Jian Shui and studied in wood-firing techniques in Japan. He named his studio Langgui as an ironic playfulness as Lang in Chinese means "unrespected job" or doing unvalued business. His dedication for bio-inspired clay craftmanship earned him a reputation as the most famous master potter with wood-firing in Jianshui clay. Victoria visited him during her 2023 sourcing trip and brought some of his works back to the US.   

Wood-firing requires a sophisticated skill set and extensive experience, and typically has a very low success rate. Not all teapots are created equal, and not all wood-fired teapots finish so beautifully. The side handle teapot exerted the radiance of the craftsmanship and the spirit of the wood-firing. It is said that wood-fired teapots have the ability to soften the water, making the tea liquor taste sweeter. A truly well-made teapot worthy of owning, and a solid investment for your teaware collection.
