Green three-legged dragon teapot by Jiang Mei Zhen 01. Green three-legged dragon teapot by Jiang Mei Zhen (蒋美珍), Yixing China

The dragon is a common theme, in Chinese art, as well as art from other parts of the world.  Since ancient times, the Dragon has been a symbol of power, nobility, and honor, as well as a symbol of luck and success.

We have seen a number of different dragon themes, in teapot art, a number of which we also have included in our gallery.  Indeed, as I am a dragon, I am particularly fond of dragons, myself.  This one is also made of special bronze clay.

Pleasant fragrance: teapot art by Wu Dong Jun 89. Pleasant Fragrance: zisha teapot art by Wu Dong Jun, Yixing

The lines of the body of this teapot are like those of a pumpkin, which is an older teapot art theme.  However, the difference with this one is that the lines continue down to the botton to make a scalloped edge.  Finishing touches are a squared-off spout, a flourish on the handle and a delicate lid-pull.

pillar of words teapot by Zheng Qiu Biao 7. Pillar of Words: original teapot design with Chinese calligraphy by Zheng Qiu Biao, Yixing

This pillar of words is etched with Chinese characters from Buddhist sutras.  Although some teapot artists have calligraphy carved into their teapots by calligraphers, rather than attempting it themselves, Zheng Qiu Biao is also know for his traditional Chinese water color and calligraphy paintings, too.  Thus, he performs all of this intracate writing himself.  This is a stout teapot with less standard lines.

Watermelon teapot by Zhang Ji Da 44. Watermelon teapot (西瓜壶): original design by Zhang Ji Da, Yixing

Although teapot art, in the shape of fruits, is common, this is the first watermelon theme that we have seen.  The red decoration on the surface and the tendrils, leaves and flower near the handle add to its artistic appeal.  The longer curved spout is classic Yixing design that goes perfectly with its oblong watermelon shape.

We tend to like fruit themes in teapot art because the require some level of skill to make those more complicated designs, and we thought that this particular one was quite special.

Bundle teapot by Jiang Mei Zhen 38. Bundle zisha teapot by Jiang Mei Zhen (蒋美珍), Yixing China

The wrapped bundle theme is a very elegant work of teapot art, especially with its dark red-brown clay.  It incorporates the delicate folds of a cloth bundle into its body, as well as the knot tying the bundle together on the lid.  Indeed, we ofthen see more deliate themes, but prices are often ridiculous.  However, Jiang Mei Zhen always incorporates delicate work in her teapot art, and her prices are still reasonable.

We think that this one is very nice, indeed.

Longneck Pumpkin teapot art by Zhang Ji Da 94. Longneck Pumpkin (瘦南瓜壶): original design teapot by Zhang Ji Da, Yixing China

Growing up in the Pennsylvania Dutch country, we always had pumpkin pie, and they always used these longneck pumpkins to make it.  In fact, growing longneck pumpkins was my first business, which I started when I was in grade school.

While the pumpkin theme is a common one, in teapot art, and we have seen many versions, this is the first one that we have come across, in the longneck variety.  You might say that I am partial to longneck pumpkins, but I certainly am partial to this teapot by Zhang Ji Da.
