Crafted By Xu Yanping
We are extremely excited to represent Xu Yanping this year. Her work is all about bold unexpected strokes and exquisite clay. Xu Yanping is an award-winning master with access to true Huanglong Shan pure mineral deposits, an extremely rare commodity these days. This pot is a confident take on the traditional Ruyi motifs, carefully hand shaped. The Huang Long Shan clay is dense and heavy. The feet evoke ancient bronze cast ewers and urns. Subtle sparkles catch the light, hinting at the exquisite potential for patina on this clay.
