120ml Da Hongni Hexagonal Pear Shape Yixing Teapot
The shape is based on a pear shape pot and made a new creation for it. The angles and symmetry took time to get right.
Da Hongni's original ore is red in colour (as opposed to the yellow ore before firing of Xiao Hongni). This ore comes from Yixing's Nanshan mining area. This has been stone ground, hand-sorted and left to rest to improve plasticity.
The pot itself is half-handmade - pressing the clay by hand into a form to construct the shape of the body, handle and spout, which are then joined together by hand.
Inside has multi hole style filter.
