hexagonal zisha teapot by Xu Zhong Fang   Traditional Hexagonal zisha clay teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang, Yixing, China

We have always admired this classical hexagonal shape with its sharp angles and curves.  We have been told that it is a difficult geometry to work with in clay. 

This one by Xu is a professional rendition with a small second hexagonal layer on the lid and a hexagonal lid pull.  It is reasonably priced, and it is the first that we have included in our gallery collection.

Bamboo, teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang   Bamboo, original zisha teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang, Yixing, China

Bamboo is a common theme in Yixing teapot art, and it is executed in any number of ways.  In this rendition, Xu has made the base octagonal, and the handle and spout are squared, but the lid pull is round.  The dark clay gives an even richer look.
         
               
Chrysanthemum, teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang   Chrysanthemum, original zisha teapot art by Xu Zhong Fang, Yixing, China

The chrysanthemum is a lovely traditional theme in Yixing teapot art.  It is characterized by representation of the flower petals stretching from bottom to top, about 16 in total, ending with turned out, rounded tips.

This one by Xu Zhong Fang, done in yellow clay, is especially nice.  The lid pull is the same pattern, in the small, and the spout and handle are classical.
