We've been testing a lot of clays recently and this batch of Qing Shui Ni clay stood out as something special for us. Both aesthetically and functionally it's really very nice
It was collected in the early 2000's by someone in Yixing that deals with small batches of original ore clays. These are unmixed, hand sorted and have no chemical additives during processing. With this clay, we commissioned a potter who has worked for over 30 years - only making shui ping teapots. His skillset may not be wide, but his specialist craftsmanship in making shui ping teapots is truly excellent. These are half-handmade, with thin walls and high fired. Inside is a single hole filter.
These are excellent teapots, and through ordering in quantity, we've been able to offer them at a price that we didn't think possible for this quality of clay and craftsmanship. We hope you enjoy them.
