Mo Lu Ni Teapot by Wu Rong Hua

Female tea artist Wu Rong Hua gained her first experience making Yixing teapots in a factory in the 90s. Under the guidance of experienced teachers, her talent for making Yixing teapots was quickly noticeable. Today, she’s a highly successful certified Yixing artist, crafting exceptional teapots that have become collectors’ favourites.

Carving on the Teapot Translated

The large characters on the teapot depicts two characters that literally translates into 'Drinking in Harmony'.The combination of these two characters was first use in Zhuang Zhi's work (a Chinese philosopher). The two large characters are carved in Zhuan Shu style (篆书): A typical Chinese calligraphy style often used in carving characters on seals.

The carvings on the teapot depict a section of a poem ( “Autumn Evening in My Mountain Abode”) by a Chinese Tang dynasty poet Wang Wei. The original calligraphy on which the carvings are based is from artist Yangshuo's White Snow Book.

The characters on teapot should be read vertically from left to right. Here's a translation:


Blank hills after the recent rain


As dusk is falling, you feel autumn through the bones


The bright moon is shining through the pines


The limpid brooks are gurgling over the stones

阳羡白雪书 (This is a signature of the calligraphy artist Yangshuo)

Great service
Love the teapot and the customer support is great. I've requested a translation of the Chinese text, and Teasenz sent me a translation the next day. Many thanks, the translation enhances the teapot for me. Review by Catherine (Posted on 7/31/2019)
I directly fell in love with this teapot after taking it out of the beautiful box. Unlike most other Yixing teapots I've seen, the carving of the Chinese characters is exceptionally precise. And there's a lot of attention to detail put in crafting the lion on the lid and Dragon features in the handle and the spout. Review by Yamamoto K. (Posted on 7/31/2019)
