Crafted By Dangzhen Pichu
In ancient Tibetan Nixi village shells were an important part of Buddhist iconography, representing the voice of the Buddha. This stunning hand-made one-of-a-kind pot evokes the auspicious shell in the lines of its form, tapping into ancient aesthetics while staying true to a modern and elegant sensibility. 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 unique long handle.
