Peacock teapot by Xu Zhong Fang 23. Peacock, zisha teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang, Yixing, China

Intricate geometric designs have been part of Yixing teapot art for several hundred years.  There are a number of different ones, but this one is one of the more intricate with the eight rounded sections of the base, which has alternating ridges and depressions.  It continues with a collar, which has alternating points and rounded edges.  It is one of the most stylish of classical teapot art shapes

Virtually flat, teapot by Xu Zhong Fang 29. Virtually Flat zisha teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang

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.

Hibiscus teapot  by Xu Zhong Fang 31. Antique Hibiscus pattern zisha teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang

This traditional hexagonal-shaped teapot is a representation of hibiscus.  We had been looking for a number of traditional teapot themes, including the hibiscus, which dates back to the last century.  Teapot artists tell us that these geometric shapes are difficult to create, and, as a result, prices are always a bit dear.  Thus, if we are going to offer one, we wanted it to be done by a master to make it extra special, and this one by Xu Zhong Fang is a beautiful example.

The complex contours, along with the edges and seams on the top that match the lip of the base, create a simple but beautiful piece.  The continuation of the theme into the lid-pull is a lovely finishing touch.

  $3,200    
 
               
Column Base, teapot by Xu Zhong Fang 35. Column Base, zisha teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang, Yixing, China

This is another common Yixing teapot theme, but it is made especially nicely.  It has a circular base that flares out at the bottom to give it the look of the base of a round column.
