Fang Sheng Qi
This kind of Yixing teapot is called 'Fang Sheng Qi', which basically refers to art pieces that resemble natural objects. This terms is interesting as the first character means 'Fang' means 'immitate', the second character 'Sheng' means 'give birth'. The last character 'Qi' is a general term for 'object'.
Among all the kinds of watermelon like teapots we've evaluated, this set you see on this page, is truly a high quality piece of art.
'Fang Sheng Qi' objects are also used in China for interior decoration purposes.
Pure & Authentic Clay
A high quality yellow Yixing clay (duan ni) is used for the base of the teapot and cups. Unlike some cheap duan ni teaware you see on the market, this duan ni clay is pure and authentic. It doesn't have a strange smell. In fact, it will improve the flavour of your tea over time, when you consistently only steep a single tea type (oolong tea, black tea, pu erh..) in this teapot.
Only a limited amount of 12 sets of this product is made by the artist.
On top of the Yellow Yixing clay surface, a thin layer of green Yixing clay (lu ni) is then applied by hand on the teapot and cups to create the watermelon look. The teapot won't discolor due to high temperature firing in the oven.
The teapot has an approximate size of 10.4x7.4cm and comes with 2 matching cups that are made from the same material. The cups hold up to 50ml of tea and are 7.3x3.5 cm (including the handle).
