|Frog on Rock original teapot art by Chen Min Jun, Yixing, China
Rock and stone themes are part of teapot art, but we especially liked this one, both because of its multi-colored clay rings, making the stone more decorative and because of the intricately-detailed frog, on top, which is a trademark detail of Chen Min Jun's teapot art.

|24.||Chameleon on tree stump: one-of-a-kind
teapot art by Sun Jin Li, Yixing, China
This is a teapot from Sun Jin Li's forest series. In this series, the focus is on the animals, which are done in extreme detail, in miniature. If you look at them with a magnifying glass, you can see features of ears, mouth, nose, eyes, feet, and the bristles along the chameleon's back, and the body is all done with great precision with different colors of clay.
The other thing that we like about the teapot art in the series is that Li has committed to making only one teapot of each that he makes in the series. So, each is completely unique: one of a kind (Li, himself, sells teapots from this series for as much as $10,000).
|29.||Virtually Flat zisha teapot art by Xu
No, it's not a scrunched picture. The flat profile teapot is a theme that has been in more traditional teapot art for a hundred years or so. We have searched, in fact, for a good example, and this one by Xu Zhong Fang is not only beautifully made but also has some nice etching on the surface.
For more of the teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang, included in the Leona Craig Art Gallery on-line, please visit the Xu Zhong Fang Page.
We also offer a generic low-profile teapot for those beginners in collecting Yixing teapot art: Yellow Low Profile.
|45.||Chinese Talisman: zisha teapot by second Yixing teapot factory
This is another Chinese Talisman that we happen to like. It is slightly different from the one shown on another page of our catalogue, but it is also well done. It is made in Yi Xing's second factory, as is the dragon monster on another page of our catalogue. It is formed by mold and finished by hand. So, if you want to ward off ghosts and other evil spirits, or if you just like these playful beasty teapots, this is another nice one to add to your collection.
|71.||Growling Tiger on Tree Stump, original
teapot art by Sun Jin Li
This is a teapot from Sun Jin Li's forest series. In this series, the focus is on the animals, which are done in extreme detail, in miniature. If you look at them with a magnifying glass, you can see detailed etching of "fur", and features of ears, mouth, nose, eyes, paws and claws, and body are all done with great precision with different colors of clay (see close-up on hyperlink page).
This one has a growling tiger sitting on top of a tree stump made of red clay with brown clay to make bark.
