This fully handmade yixing tea pot is one-of-a-kind and available while supplies last

Crafted By Tang Xian Wu

Bamboo is one of the most inspirational and quintessential forms for yixing art - a major part of Yixing and other tea growing regions mountain landscapes, growing out of the same soil that builds teapots and nourishes tea.

Tang Xianwu’s personal meditations on the form of bamboo like this one are a big part of what made a name for her as a formidable artist. She combines a time-polished river rock teapot body with bamboo sprouting out to form the pot’s top, spout and handles. The sprouting bamboo has a dynamic energy and vibrance, captured mid-motion; life and beauty from the earth.

Tang Xian Wu has gained steady fame and accolades over the years, winning awards at every competition, so we are excited to still be able to offer her work due to a long working relationship. 

    The pictures speak for themselves, showing off the grace and perfection of the whole piece coming together. What the pictures can’t capture is the incredible tactile quality of this piece, the exquisitely smooth surface, the delicate sculptural detail, the perfectly-fitting lid, and the way the Yuan Kuang Qing Duan Ni clay shows depth and mottling in the light.

    This is a piece that will grow over a lifetime of use, gaining luster and patina with every brew.
