Teapot from Mr. Shao SO-36Mr. Shao Collection
This earthenware teapot comes to us directly from a young artisan from Yixing, Mr. Shao. Shao Guo Jun was born and educated in the city of Ding Shan.
There he learned traditional pottery techniques with some of the greatest masters. The teapots which he makes are in the classic style. They are simple, delicate and elegant, while being inspired by nature and Chinese culture. His style is both plain and very much alive.
Shao Guo Jun constantly seeks to improve the quality of the teapots he makes. He is part of a new generation of promising young potters.
