Teapot from Mr. Shao | SourceMr. Shao Collection
The impeccable reputation that Yixing teapots have had for centuries does not limit the designers' playfulness; how can you not smile when you see these fish acting as different elements of the piece?
Shao Guo Jun is a potter from Yixing who conscientiously makes practical pieces. The craftsman humbly runs the family workshop with his mother, his wife and a few fellow villagers who come to help out when needed.
In 2007, during his annual trip to China, Jasmin, one of the tasters at Camellia Sinensis, met Mr. Shao for the first time in the village of Ding Shan. His approach and know-how impressed him, and he has been a valuable and loyal partner ever since.
