Yixing

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.

Teapot from Ms. Sheng | Heini

Ms. Sheng's Yixing Heini clay teapots reveal this intense black through a processing method that deliberately amplifies the original pigment.

Cup from Ms.Sheng | Duan Ni

The unique tone of this Yixing cup is the result of multiple firings: six firings rather than two and this Duan Ni (yellow clay) piece is transformed into a complex material. As a finishing touch, the very last firing in the wood kiln gives rarity and richness to Ms Sheng's work.
