Teapot from Ms. Sheng | ZhuniMs. Sheng Collection
A Yixing teapot by Ms. Sheng, whose burnt ochre colour comes from the Zhuni clay, particularly highlighted here in the Xishi style, a traditional round shape.
Zhuni clay has a reputation for being versatile and welcoming of all tea families that will honour the gong fu cha technique, especially the green Wulongs.
A double high-temperature gas firing completes the multiple steps necessary to arrive at the final work: a concise and delicate teapot requiring great mastery by the artist.
Since 1982, Ms. Sheng has been a clay potter and has learned from several great masters at the Institute of Fine Arts and Crafts of China. Mrs. Sheng Xi Hua is a well-known personality in the pottery world in China. She has achieved one of the highest levels of distinction in this field.
