A beautifully and elegantly "Ding" shaped teapot made by the young artist Huang Yu in 2022. One of his new work, fully hand-made with aged purple clay. The pot is super smoothly finished with the beautiful flow through the whole pot, and it already shows glossy and silk to the touch, and very easy to hold and pour. The teapot's shape was inspired from the bronze Ding vessels which were cooking pots reserved for offering of food to ancestors during the Shang through the Han(206 B.C.E.–220 C.E.) dynasties.
This pot will be a great one to use to brew any types of teas, particular for Puer Teas and any aged teas.
All our Yixing teapots are fully handmade, we only have one of a kind in stock.
