Crafted By Tang Xian Wu

This stunning sculptural piece is National Master Potter Tang Xianwu’s tribute to the scholarly tradition.

Tang Xianwu is famous for her incredible precision and ability to capture a sense of drama, and heightened ritual while pulling off an effortless grace. This old deposit Yuan Kuang Di Cao Qing clay pot is a perfect example of that grace- adorned with an arrangement meant to evoke the scholar-poet’s studio with natural objects of contemplation, ringed by hewn stone, a scholar’s garden in miniature to bring the sense of self cultivation through connection with nature into tea ceremony.

Tang Xian Wu’s has gained steady fame and accolades over the years, winning awards at every competition, so we are excited to still be able to offer her work due to a long working relationship. 

    The pictures of this piece speak for themselves, showing off the grace and perfection of the whole piece coming together.

    The name “yan yun” is a play on words. Literally, it could be interpreted as the aesthetic beauty and staying power of rocks - the natural objects of contemplation, but it is also a term co-opted to the world of tea to describe the reverberating cooling tingling aftertaste of fine Wuyi oolong.
