This masterful hand-crafted pot by living cultural treasure Dangzhen Pichu in Nixi Village brings together ancient Tibetan style and the aesthetics of modern gongfu tea. After doing cultural exchange and research in Yixing, Dangzhen Pichu has been able to incorporate gongfu style into his forms like this one. The silver sweeping across the form is a rare effect of firing called yaobian that is highly sought after because it can only occur through chance during traditional bonfire firing. The interior of the pot is rough-hewn, leaving intentional indentations to show the role of the artist. This piece will absorb the flavor and aroma of tea over time and build a beautiful patina like Yixing, and bears master Dangzhen Pichu’s seal under the handle.
