Crafted By Lai Xiaohong
This stunning Zi Ni teapot is part of Lai Xiaohong’s award-winning masterwork series combining the strength and elegance of classic form seamlessly with natural detail. The craft and time required to form a pot that transitions so perfectly between stark and clean abstraction to elegant touches of bamboo tests Lai Xiaohong’s skill and demands many dozens more hours of work to execute with her level of effortlessness.
This teapot is a meditation on the overflowing abundance of spring, with bamboo and natural elements almost growing into and around the pot body. The stunning sculptural detail evokes the twisted irregularities of prized scholarly objects of contemplation- found objects in nature set up in the scholar studio to inspire. The deep Zi Ni clay will continue to grow more lustrous and beautiful over time.
