Yuan Kuang Zhi Ni "Gao Yi" Yixing

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

Crafted By Wang Jie

This gorgeous traditional pot by up and coming yixing artist Wang Jie takes the grace of a Long Dan form and the warmth of a Xi Shi, bringing them together in this elegant and tall hand made teapot. The execution of form is particularly impressive considering how much more meticulous craft is required to work at this small pot scale. Pots under 150ml 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.
