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)
