Judging from the comments from last Friday’s post, I’d say many of you found Zhou Gui Zhen’s teapot making video as impressive as I did.


Today, as promised, we bring you another Yixing teapot video. This one focuses on the finishing refinements that are made to Yixing teapots. Master artist Zhu Jiang Long demonstrates how every inch of the teapot is considered from the lid right to the signature stamp on the bottom. The method he uses for making the lid fit perfectly can be used on any lidded form, and the lesson of considering every last detail is something we can all try to bring to our own work. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
