Water Cestnut Yixing teapot by Xu Zhong Fang   Water Chestnut, zisha teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang

This is another, more fancy, traditional Yixing teapot theme from around a century ago.  It has always been one of our favorite classical shapes, and Xu's representation is is done quite well.
  $1,500      
               
Square Teapot by Xu Zhong Fang, Yixing, China   Square teapot, zisha teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang

Square teapots are quite difficult to make, as we have learned from experience in this business.  A tripod will always level itself on a surface, but a squre base needs to be baked, perfectly, in order for its bottom to be level.
  $2,400      
               
Chang, zisha teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang   Chang, zisha teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang, Yixing, China

The half moon shape is a difficult shape to find, these days, so we were happy to discover that Xu Zhong Fang does several.  This one has the two-stick handle that we see in a few other styles of teapot art, and it also has calligraphy on the body.
         
               
Chinese wind II, teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang   Chinese Wind II, zisha teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang, Yixing, China

The calligraphy on this one was done by Han Mei Lin.  The trees bend in the wind, which is the style of the lid pull, but, interestingly, the two bent tree theme is repeated in the handle of the teapot.
