Golden "Xu Pian" Yixing

Golden "Xu Pian" Yixing

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

Crafted By Wang Jie

When an yixing teapot is crafted with such precise and careful geometry, the addition of gold leaf catches the light and forms a gorgeous contrast to the deep red Zhu Ni. Up and coming artist Wang Jie shows off her mastery of the Xu Pian form, capturing the grace of the wide exaggerated pot body and the off-set spout. This is particularly impressive considering how much more meticulous craft is required to work at this small pot scale. Pots under 100ml are more and more rare as potters turn to large format work, but decades ago, small pots like this one were the classic favorite for extended gongfu sessions. The clay itself is ready to take on luster and patina over years of brewing.
