Jian Shui Zi Tao Purple Clay "Black and White Swirl" Xi Shi Teapot 220ml
The material is commonly known as Jianshui ‘Zitao’ which translates as 5 colour clay - red, yellow, white, black and purple clays are used. Each pot displays shades of different colours, as a result of the firing conditions in the kiln - making your teapots and cups unique. Add to this, the potters' skill in mixing clays to create products with unique mosaics and stripes; you have something very special. We take time to appreciate the Jianshui products that come to us, knowing, there will never be one like it again. Every stripe, colour and pattern is unique to just that one product.
