A hand-crafted teapot from Chaozhou, in China's Guangdong Province. Chaozhou is famous as one of China's great centres of fine ceramic crafts. The local red clays, particularly those from Fenghuang Mountain, are ideal for teaware thanks to their porous nature and their mineral content.
Each teapot is unique, and this example is particularly fine. This example has a pear-shaped body, a curved spout and an incredibly narrow construction that showcases the great skill with which these pots are made.
