This powerful hand-built piece by award-winning potter Pan Yang makes a strong statement.
The striking Yuan Kuang old deposit huang jin duan ni clay serves as a backdrop for a dramatic pair of carvings - a gnarled pine bough and a delicate blossoming branch, both framed against the shape of beautifully sculpted bamboo.
Notice the bold angles of the bamboo segments in the spout and handle, gestures revealing Pan Yang’s masterful execution of a time-honored traditional form. This teapot is ready for a lifetime of brewing to build up a deep warm patina and give back depth and texture to every tea.
