There's something about pots made by someone with real skill. Even simple shapes have a strength and glow that makes pots come alive in a way that those made by less experienced potters fail to do.
These pots were fully handmade, in the style of a late Qing dynasty pot. They're made from aged zini clay that Ma Yong Qiang purchased from old stock when Yixing Factory 1 closed. They have medium thickness walls and were medium-high fired. Inside is a single hole filter. The lid fit is perfect and the pour is relatively fast.
These are very nicely made pots. We commissioned five of these. As they're fully handmade, there's some slight variation between them, but very similar.
