Crafted By Lai Xiaohong
This gorgeous shi piao was hand built by Lai Xiaohong using a coarse zhu ni clay that grows deeper and more lustrous over a lifetime of use. The traditional shi piao form is one of our favorites for the simple but strong geometry of the triangle repeated in each element of the pot. The inscription reads 君子之交清茶淡水, which speaks to the elegance and refinement when pure clean tea comes together with pure clean water without any other trappings or adornment. The confident simplicity of this teapot fulfills the poetry of the inscription and inspires contemplation on the simple joy of tea ritual.
